With the realisation that remote working can often bring about huge cost savings and an increase in productivity, many organisations are now introducing Hybrid working – a combination of home-working and hot-desking.
Hot-desking is the practice in an office of allocating desks to workers for the days when they are required or on a rotating system, rather than giving each worker their own desk.
As with everything, planning is key when introducing a change to your working practices and policies.
Not only will you have to consider the technical equipment and wiring access points required for hot-desking, but also adaptations that may need to be made to – and communicated about – the telephone system so that employees can be easily contacted and available.
With the correct planning and preparation, the adjustments for hot-desking can be made relatively straight forward and minimal configuration would be required. The increased use of VoIP, where your telephony also uses the internet and is not tied to a geographical location as remains the case for analogue and ISDN lines, means that the communications can also be adapted with comparative ease.
With appropriate help from your support companies, hot-desking can be of minimal disruption and help take your business forward.
If you are planning to introduce hot-desking, would like to discuss our Cloud services to enable remote working or would like to know more about the options of VoIP telephony, please give us a call on 0118 976 7111.
