Frustrated from never getting the chance for a meeting with your department head? Maybe you’re simply scheduling it at the wrong time, according to a survey published in the online newspaper Quartz.
Monday mornings are popular times for a meeting, which means two thirds of invites around that time will be declined. You might be better off asking to meet in the afternoon, once things have calmed down, Quartz suggests.
However, if you really need to pin someone down then probably the best time to do it is 2.30pm on Tuesday. Just make sure the person you are speaking to has had their lunch, though, because otherwise the chances are their judgement will be impaired.
