Desk booking refers to the process of making work stations available for reservation throughout an office, typically through a software solution that employees can use for booking.
As many companies are increasingly adopting a hybrid work model, a desk booking software system is a critical piece of the puzzle to create flexibility for employees while maintaining a meaningful office presence for at least a subset of the employee base.
A “hot desk” is a desk that isn’t assigned, meaning that any employee can use it. “Desk hoteling” is similar to desk booking, and refers to the process of reserving a desk and “checking in and out” as you would at a hotel.
All that said, it is common for people to use the words interchangeably, as they all refer to an office that has at least some workstations without permanent employee assignment. To simply allocate open desks or meeting rooms, companies typically use a desk booking software tool.
Desk booking software is a tool that allows you to book desks in an office, either on a one-time or recurring basis. Many desk booking software systems also include an office floorplan, information on desk amenities, and a roster of employees who have booked desks on any given day.
Hot desk booking software makes the hybrid workplace experience better for employees and admins.
Instead of giving everyone a permanent desk, employees can choose which desk they’ll work at, based on when they plan on working in-office. They can also choose desks based on which coworkers they’re currently working on projects with.
Having the flexibility to work where they want, along with the opportunity to once again collaborate face-to-face with their coworkers and build stronger connections in person, can have a huge impact on your team. Desk booking software in the hybrid workplace gives your employees the ability to create their own office experience, which helps increase employee satisfaction.
Hot desk booking software in a hybrid workplace is also usually more cost-effective than the traditional fixed desk setup, and helps break down silos between departments.
