Over the past several years, finding a place to work riddled with amenities was seemingly simple. Now, as workspaces continue to close their doors due to the massive shift to remote working, Not Desking is on the horizon.
As experts argue over the best strategies to bring employees back into the workplace, one of the first models to go has been the idea of hot desking. Hot desks typically consist of professionals walking into a shared office space and choosing an unassigned desk to work at for the day.
Prior to the pandemic, hot desking had increased in popularity as it provided an agile solution for businesses looking to cut costs on their real estate footprint.
Working from home has proven to be tricky to navigate. While some have the ability to dedicate one room to their home office, others with one bedroom apartments are stuck conducting business from their kitchen counters. In short, remote working is not equal for all.
Many companies are expecting workers to be able to come into the office for in-person meetings, but otherwise fend for themselves. Without support from employers during times of remote working, work culture could suffer greatly.
