Should All IT Meetings Be ‘Stand Up Meetings’?

Recent studies show that IT professionals could benefit from making all their meetings stand up meetings—literally.  Recent studies show that when employees hold meetings while standing (versus sitting) they are far more creative and mentally engaged.  Everyone in the information technology industry, from IT recruiters, to IT contractors, to IT managers, could benefit from applying this information to their IT jobs.

Beyond simply applying this information to meetings, it’s worth noting that IT contractors and IT headhunters may benefit any time they stand at work.  Particularly in projects that require a great deal of creativity, it’s worth considering standing for at least part of the work you’ll be doing.  Who knows, maybe you’ll find a new idea pop out of nowhere!
