Meaning – The word concur, refers to the process of coming to an irrevocable agreement to a point of discussion. In an organisation, there are many discussions ongoing at any given point of time. Among these, the board meets over the most crucial ones, and the discussion comes to an end, only when all of them concur over a certain point of agreement or disagreement.
Itis very important that the concerned authorities concur over a matter, as it avoids misunderstanding down the line.
Usually, when a group of people cannot concur over a matter, it is pushed forward for another discussion at a later date, or is scrapped entirely.
Example of usage – “After a lengthy discussion, the board finally concurred that the employee deserved a promotion for his flawless track record and work ethic.”
