    Question town hall

    Hello,

    could you please tell me what the expression "town hall" means in the following text (it is probably management terminology)

    Critical behaviors are not discussed at staff meetings, town halls, newsletters or employee meetings.

    And an additional question:
    Is there any difference between "staff meetings" and "employee meetings"?

    Thank you very much

    Town hall meetings are public meetings. Everyone can come, voice an opinion and vote. For example - rezoning a piece of property from residential to commercial. Everyone can voice their opinon be it concern about traffic to new jobs for the community.
    I am used to the term staff meeting for segregated entities, departments, comittees while employee meetings include every employee of the company. You would have a staff meeting to discuss budget but an employee meeting to announce profits.
