WHAT IS HOT DESKING?Wednesday, 22 May 2019
Workspaces in 2019 are changing – they are becoming more dynamic & forward thinking, with a stronger focus on maximising efficiency & collaboration. So what is hot desking and why is it so popular?
The term ‘hot desking’ is a trend that typically involves employees changing workstations from day to day, rather than being consigned to a particular desk. It is also a useful system for part-time employees who may require their own pod.
This free range approach to office life can be done on a small scale, involving only a handful of employees, or on a larger scale (an entire office).
So how could it benefit your office?
Hot desking increases communication, encouraging team members to collaborate with each other. It is also thought to help with creativity, as a change of scenery can break the mundane consistency of an assigned workspace.
A synced working environment
Hot desking allows team members to work closely together; even those with very different roles. In turn, this can strengthen professional relationships, help employees to better understand other team members roles & to learn new skills.
A smaller, better organized workspace
Having designated hot desking areas can help to cut down on unnecessary real estate by eliminating wasted space. Mobile personal storage units can be used in conjunction with hot desks, to allow users to keep organised while moving from one zone to another.
