Innovative Ways Companies Are Changing the Workplace
1) “Hot-Desking” (i.e. No Assigned Seating)
Thanks to wireless internet, laptops, and tablets, employees are finding they don’t necessarily need to be chained to a single desk. Instead, they can move around their space more, technology in tow. And some companies have taken this to the next level by eliminating personal desks and opting for a configuration called “hot desking.”
Hot desking simply means no one in the office has an assigned desk or seating area. Instead, when you come in to work in the morning, you can sit anywhere you please — from open tables or desks set up with cables and monitors, to more public spaces like couches and chairs. For this to work, a company should take special care to create spaces in the office that can easily be reconfigured for different tasks and evolving teams.
