Hot desking eliminates hierarchy, allows flexibility, and promotes social interaction between employees. Despite that, it has never been everyone’s cup of tea. What are the most popular alternatives to hot desking in the modern open office?
Hot desking is a workspace management tactic when employees share communal desks instead of having a dedicated workstation. As opposed to the assigned seating practices, it is based on the first come - first served principle and does not involve reservations in advance. The workplaces are allocated to (or selected by) employees on the spot, upon arrival at the office.
