MyDesk isn’t just for those with flexible workspaces. For many of our customers, the majority of employees have fixed workstations, but MyDesk still plays an important role. The system allows everyone to see who is in the office on any given day, promoting collaboration and communication.

In addition, MyDesk can help you make the most of your office’s capacity.

When an employee who normally has a fixed seat works from home, their seat can be released and made available to others.

Customized to your company's design and office layout

Customizing MyDesk to your company’s unique design, logo and layout is crucial to the user experience. This creates a sense of consistency and familiarity, whether employees are using the solution on mobile, desktop, Teams or Outlook.

They are presented with a consistent and recognizable experience that feels like a natural extension of the company’s brand. It doesn’t feel like an external platform, but an integral part of the company’s environment.

In addition, we offer free floor plan maintenance if you need to reorganize your office.

Our research shows that this tailored approach significantly increases employee usage and satisfaction compared to a standard solution where MyDesk’s logo and colors dominate.

Design and customization is not just aesthetics, it’s central to user engagement and satisfaction.

In a world where hybrid working has become the new norm, understanding how best to balance remote and in-person work is crucial for optimal productivity.

What is Hybrid Work?

Hybrid working is a mix of remote and in-person work, where employees have the freedom to work wherever suits them best. This working model offers a unique blend of flexibility and structure that can benefit both employees and businesses.

The benefits of hybrid working

Hybrid working has many benefits, including:

  1. Flexibility: Employees have the ability to tailor their work environment and routines to their specific needs.
  2. Productivity: The ability to work in an environment that best suits an individual’s work style can increase productivity.
  3. Work-life balance: This working model makes it easier for employees to balance their professional and personal lives.
  4. Collaboration and innovation: By combining remote and in-person work, companies can promote both individual productivity and team innovation.

Challenges of Hybrid Working

Despite the many benefits, there are also challenges associated with hybrid working. These can include:

  • Communication and collaboration: It can be more challenging to communicate and collaborate effectively when team members are working in different locations and at different times.
  • Work culture and engagement: Building a strong work culture and engaging employees can be more difficult in a hybrid work environment.
  • Performance management and accountability: Measuring employee performance and ensuring accountability can be more difficult in a hybrid work model.

Strategies for Balancing Remote and Personal Work

To overcome these challenges and get the most out of hybrid working, it’s important to implement effective strategies. Here are some suggestions:

For Employees

  • Create a productive workplace: Whether you work from home or in the office, make sure you create a work environment that promotes productivity.
  • Plan your time efficiently: Use the flexibility of the hybrid model to plan your working hours in a way that suits your needs and preferences.
  • Stay connected: Use technology tools to stay connected with your colleagues and maintain effective collaboration.
  • Take care of your mental wellbeing: Remember to take breaks, look after your mental health and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

For Managers

  • Give your team freedom: Trust in your team’s ability to choose the work environment that best suits their tasks and productivity.
  • Focus on results: In a hybrid world, it’s important to focus on results rather than hours worked.
  • Communicate clearly: Make sure you communicate clearly with your team about expectations of when and where they should work.
  • Support your team’s development: Wherever your team works from, make sure you support their professional development and career growth.

For Managers

  • Create clear policies: It’s important to have clear hybrid work policies to give employees clarity and help them navigate the complex landscape of remote and in-person work.
  • Invest in technology: The right technology infrastructure is essential to ensure seamless collaboration, no matter where employees are located.
  • Prioritize employee satisfaction: Create a work environment that prioritizes employees and offers flexibility and choice.
  • Make data-driven decisions: Use data to inform your decisions and continuously refine your hybrid working strategies.


Hybrid working is a powerful model that can bring out the best in both remote and in-person work. With the right strategies, companies and employees can navigate this new landscape and achieve high productivity, satisfaction and a better work-life balance.
