Why you should adopt a desk booking system for your workplace Posted on 19 Nov 12:26
Have you heard about the new wave of desk booking solutions available for modern workplaces? Are you looking to implement hot, flexible or fixed desk use at your office?
In modern offices, employees spend a fraction of their day at their tables. It has been shown that 30% of all tables are empty and are thus occupying precious real estate in the office. Therefore, in order to maximize the use of workspaces and reduce overhead costs, many companies are turning to desk booking systems to foster greater collaboration, teamwork, efficiency, and flexibility. It is a great solution for firms with many casual, part-time or contracted employees.
Hot desking is a form of office hoteling that can be used by anybody at any time. Flexible tables are available at specific times and activity-based or fixed tables can be reserved for certain departments or teams.
