Meetings matter, miles don’t. In one year alone, virtual meetings saved one billion miles and $600 million.

Blue Jeans Network recently introduced The State of the Modern Meeting, its inaugural report benchmarking trends in collaboration and demonstrating how technology is reshaping meetings. The report reveals that people are joining meetings from anywhere and everywhere and that women are leading the charge.

In an era of global teams and remote workers, the loss of in-person communication may take a toll on collaboration and connectivity. Blue Jeans, a cloud-based video collaboration service, makes meetings engaging, personal and effective by connecting people face-to-face from practically any device. As we evolve the way we work, Blue Jeans data reveals key trends in modern meetings:

  • An average business meeting lasts 45 minutes and has 4.3 participants.
  • Women are “Leaning In” to meetings, attending 11 percent more meetings than men.
  • Running a company can mean running late as CEOs, CTOs and founders are most often late to meetings.
  • Early morning meetings and 9 to 5 days are no longer the norm, with 49 percent of meetings taking place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and most workdays concluding by 10 p.m.
