Flexible seating and hot desking are two types of workplace arrangements that offer flexibility and adaptability to the changing needs of employees.
Flexible seating refers to a workplace setup where employees can choose where and how they work within a specified area. This can include options like standing desks, bean bag chairs and other non-traditional seating. Employees are encouraged to move around and find a workplace that best suits their needs and preferences.
Hot desking, on the other hand, refers to an arrangement where employees don’t have fixed seats, but instead work at an available workstation on a first-come, first-served basis. This may include shared desks, workstations or tables, and employees are expected to clear their workspace at the end of the day.
Both arrangements offer increased flexibility and a more dynamic work environment, but there are some differences between the two. Flexible seating typically gives employees more freedom to choose where they work, while hot desking is more structured and focused on optimizing the use of the workspace.
