Don’t Schedule Meetings After 4 p.m.

The traditional 9-to-5 schedule is being redefined

Hybrid work is the new Millennials. It is being blamed for destroying everything.

Most recently, hybrid work is apparently making it really hard to schedule meetings from 4 to 6 p.m., since workers are ducking out slightly early to pick up their kids or get a workout in, according to The Wall Street Journal. Some workers make up for the time missed by logging on again in the evening. (Personally, I never got the memo that the 9-to-5 now ends at 6.) In other words, people are trying to find a compromise between their work lives and the rest of their lives.

Still, some managers are lamenting that these absences make it difficult for their teams to be productive because getting things done at work apparently requires everyone to be present at the same time, right before dinner. But perhaps 4 to 6 p.m. — the final hours of a long work day when many aren't at their most clear-headed — was never a good time to schedule a meeting.
