Hoteling or Hot Desking – is the new way of reserving your workspace or office. Reservation-based style of office management on an as-needed basis.
This method has become very popular over the past decade. The concept came about in the communications and technology sector – where more employees started telecommuting or working from home and would call an office concierge to schedule a seat or office as required.
Benefits of Hoteling:
· Financial - companies use hoteling as a cost savings for real estate costs, companies can allow for headcount growth without the need to invest in more space for employees.
· More Resources – offices who have implemented telecommuting have discovered that while employees were absent, the resources in the office are readily available to the staff and visiting employees.
· Engaged Employees – when providing a space without rigorous daily requirements, and promoting a space where employees can choose where they sit allows for employee interaction and engagement.
· Productivity Increases – by creating a flexible work environment, employees can now choose what type of environment they want to work in. Hoteling provides the end-user to reserve a collaboration work area or a conference room to work privately.
