Shopify CEO Tells Employees To Just Say No to Meetings

Shopify CEO Tobi Lutke Tells Employees To Just Say No to Meetings

As employees return from holiday break, the Canadian e-commerce firm said it’s conducting a “calendar purge,” removing all recurring meetings with more than two people “in perpetuity,” while reupping a rule that no meetings at all can be held on Wednesdays. Big meetings of more than 50 people will get shoehorned into a six-hour window on Thursdays, with a limit of one a week. The company’s leaders will also encourage workers to decline other meetings, and remove themselves from large internal chat groups.

If you know me, you know how much I love this move by Shopify.

On the day this story dropped, Shopify founder, Tobi Lütke, shared this Tweet. I can't get it out of my mind. 🤯
