We are a small company of around 14 employees that provides 3rd party support for software that is made by other companies. I work in the support team.
My colleagues and I have noticed a common occurrence surrounding meetings in our work place. All of the departments have their meetings involving their whole team in work hours, apart from the support team.
The support team instead has the meetings involving the whole department outside of work hours. The company justifies this by raising the point that if we did it inside of work hours there would be no one available for that time to man the phones and handle any issues that occur in that time.
Is there any solution that could be tried? My initial thought would be to pull half of the team out for the meeting and then do the other half afterwards.
