'The Ugly Truth About Meetings' infographic sheds light on just how unproductive office meetings can truly be. Fuze, a visual communications company created the insightful chart and in addition to exploiting office meetings, the company also provides tips for a more productive workplace get-together.

The infographic first reveals shocking stats like the fact that more than $37 billion is spent per year on unproductive meetings and that there are 25 million meetings per day in the US alone. It also highlights the reasoning behind unproductiveness; it blames multitasking, uninterested workers and lack of pre-planned structures.

If managers scheduled shorter meetings, sent out expectations and agendas beforehand and stayed focused, then meetings would be much more effective.
