Reverse desk hoteling
What is reverse desk hoteling?
Reverse desk hoteling is a workplace strategy that maximizes office space utilization while providing flexibility and accessibility for employees.
With reverse desk hoteling, an employee with an assigned desk or workspace voluntarily makes it available to a flexible pool of desks for booking when they are not using it. This strategy is commonly employed when an employee is working remotely, on vacation, or out of the office for the day. Once the employee returns to the office, the desk is theirs again.
Reverse desk hoteling requires a structured desk booking solution to optimize the use of desk resources, enabling employees to reserve desks quickly and easily, while ensuring that all available desk space is being used efficiently. This approach helps organizations reduce their real estate footprint, while providing employees with the flexibility to choose where and when they work.
