10. Glued together forever
During season 7, Michael (Steve Carell) and Holly (Amy Ryan) were finally dating and demonstrated, at all times, how they lived together. Obviously, this exaggeration made the other characters very uncomfortable. A meeting was called to solve the problem and the result was very impressive.
9. Sex education
After Michael realizes that he has a cold sore on his lips, many in the office believe he has herpes. To soften the gossip that was spreading, Andy (Ed Helms) holds a meeting with the theme of sex education. Despite its good intentions, the meeting ends up being quite embarrassing on several levels.
8. Female recognition

Season 8 brought a number of changes for Andy, who, on returning from his vacation, finds Nellie (Catherine Tate) taking over.

6. Diversity Day
One of the first meetings presented in the series shows the characters being visited by a speaker who decides to speak to everyone about the importance of diversity. However, Michael gets angry and decides to hold his own meeting on the topic, using various stereotypes and racial slurs as a means of learning about different cultures. Something very uncomfortable for everyone who was present.
Over the course of Season 2 of The Office, viewers saw many absurd things happen in the office. In one episode, Michael is injured because he burned his foot. Because of this, he expected everyone to take care of him, which was not the case.
Thus, he ends up calling a meeting to make everyone think better of his actions and talking about empathy in a completely distorted way.
4. Censorship of subjects
In an episode of season 6, Michael fell into a koi pond during a sales visit with Jim (John Krasinski). And later on, everyone finds out that Jim made no effort to help him.

Thus, Jo (Kathy Bates) ends up choosing Creed (Creed Bratton) as interim regional manager. However, Creed’s meetings show that he didn’t even know what he was doing at work.
To form his team, the character ends up not even telling his colleagues about the meeting he was going to do.
