Hot desking is a shared office space in which there are no permanent desks or spaces. Desks are flexibly shared amongst different people in different disciplines, depending on availability which is random unlike coworking spaces. With increasing technological advancements, many freelancers and businesses are beginning to adopt shared offices in the UK. At times there is no need for a permanent working space; needless to mention the relatively high cost of maintaining a permanent site.
Some of the benefits of hot desking include:
Office Space: Working from home can be difficult because of the numerous distractions competing for your attention. A hot desk completely eliminates this problem.
Cost Effectiveness: Hot desks in London can be very expensive to rent a office space permanently, especially in the city centre. Going for flexible, temporary options could reduce your expenditure by up to 30%.
Work Flexibility: You can decide to switch as and when needed. Your business, for example could grow from needing 4 hot desks 5 times a week to needing 20 hot desks a week, or the reverse could be the case. More often than not, you can rent an office space for a day or go with monthly and hourly contracts, depending on your business needs.
Staff Collaboration: A shared office allows for collaboration between employees from different departments with different skill-sets sharing an office space. Besides building professional relationships that might not have been possible otherwise, employees could bounce ideas off each other regarding the different projects they are working on. This could lead to innovation.
Less clutter: Because there are no permanent hot desks, many hot desk renters require completely cleaned desks after work, thereby discouraging clutter which could impede work progress.
Office Maintenance: You won’t have to worry about office maintenance with a temporary, flexible office space. The renter bears that responsibility.
