Often times when you hear the terms “hoteling or hot desking” immediately there is a hesitation indicating there will be no longer a productive workspace, but this simply could not be any further from the truth. With major advancements in technology, hoteling and hot desking have become the preferred methods of working in an office space. While hoteling refers to reserving a workspace in advance, hot desking also known as free address, efers to choosing an unassigned workstation onsite. Working in a free address environment actually provides an amazing transformative space of mobility and innovations which can help improve productivity as well as helping the organization save money.
There are many benefits for both employers and employees to work in a free address environment (also known as activity-based workspace) such as better communication, collaboration, and flexibility while reducing costs.
