Hot-desking is where staff share workspaces instead of having designated desks.
Hot-desking allows you to reclaim unused office space. Why keep designated workstations for agile employees who are in and out of the office all week? With hot-desking, staff can settle down at whatever workstation is available that day. This leaves space for other features, like meeting spaces, break-out areas, or wellbeing features, like gym equipment, or a games room.
Hot desking can bring an array of benefits, including:
- reduced overheads.
- greater collaboration.
- stimulating change.
- space saving.
Switching to a hot desk environment can be tricky, especially when staff are used to owning and personalising their workstations. The switchover may require specialist management and training. There are also ergonomic issues to consider. We’re all different shapes and sizes. How can you make sure your workstations are suitable for everyone? That’s where we can help.
