Hot desking is something that has become increasingly popular over recent years, although it is currently on a short hiatus following social distancing guidelines where we are unable to share desks.
At some point in the future this system will be allowed once again, with the possibility of it being even more common than before. This is due to the fact that during the Covid 19 lockdown, many companies realised they do not need all of their staff in the office all of the time, giving them the opportunity to move to smaller premises and have certain members of staff only come in once or twice a week when there is a free desk. We have taken a closer look at the idea of hot desking to see if your company will be able to benefit from it in the future.
Hot desking is the sharing of a space, where no one person has ownership to that desk. This enables different people to be in the office on different days of the week, without the worry of having somewhere to sit, as if the system is well organised, the hot desk will be free on the day that you have arranged. Even if your employees are always in the office all at once, you can still use the hot desking system, so that no-one has an assigned desk at any time.
If you are planning to start using a hot desking system in your office, then now is a great time to invest in some equipment that can help to prepare each space for different users who may all have varying needs.
These are easy to use and will change the height of a monitor within seconds. This will enable each employee to set up their work area ergonomically when they arrive, perfect for hot deskers who are different heights and will need the monitor higher or lower.
Ergonomically friendly and easy to use, a standing desk is perfect for the health of the back and neck, as well as being easy to adjust to a height that suits the employee of the day. You can change the height in seconds and it has the ability to be used standing up or sitting down.
An office chair needs to be comfortable and if you are hot desking, it also needs to be adjustable to suit all heights and body types.
