Hot Desking: What Is It and What Are the Benefits?

You’re not alone if you miss the perks of working in an office. In a survey by Indeed, 73% of respondents claimed to miss socializing with colleagues in person, while 64% missed the lack of distractions in an office.

While working from home has many advantages, it’s not for everyone. Unfortunately, companies don’t typically consider individual differences when deciding whether to have employees report to the office or keep working from home.

Hot desking via a shared office is a great solution for those who feel they get more done and have a better work-life balance if they work at a physical office.

What Is Hot Desking?

In a typical brick-and-mortar office setup, “hot desking” refers to the practice of not giving employees their own permanent desk. Instead, desks are available for anyone on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Most shared offices and coworking spaces practice hot desking, especially since their customers are often freelancers or employees who just need a quiet space conducive to working in for a day or two. However, some shared offices, such as the Cross Campus coworking space in Los Angeles, offer not just hot desking but also private desk and office rentals. This option is ideal for those who want more privacy and those who dislike having to organize their things every time they come to work.

Why Is Hot Desking Becoming More Popular?

The first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing shelter-in-place policies across the U.S. have led to a dramatic shift in how we work. Seemingly overnight, scores of workers no longer had to endure long commutes, workplace distractions and rigid schedules. In turn, companies enjoyed the advantages of not renting an office space, such as reduced costs and fewer absences due to sickness or burnout.

However, it turns out that working from home has its own set of challenges. These include home distractions from family members and chores. Other challenges of working entirely from home include:

  • Isolation: It turns out that most of us do miss small talk at the water cooler. According to an Indeed report, 45% of remote workers miss in-person meetings with their colleagues.
  • No work-life balance: If you work, eat, and sleep in the same place, it becomes hard to separate work and home life. This could negatively impact mental health and increase the risk of burnout.
  • Fewer tools and amenities: It’s hard to do your job effectively if your internet is too slow or your laptop struggles with running enterprise apps. While these might seem like minor issues, they can significantly affect your concentration, impacting your productivity and efficiency.

However, remote work also offers many advantages, such as reduced travel costs, flexibility and more freedom. 

Hot Desking Is The Best of Both Worlds

Hybrid work is the perfect compromise between working from home and at the office. However, what if your company no longer has a physical office?

A great option is hot desking at a shared office. For instance, the Cross Campus coworking space in Los Angeles and our locations in Pasadena and El Segundo are fully equipped with everything you need to do your best work. These include:

  • Free High-Speed WIFI
  • Air Conditioning
  • Unlimited electricity usage
  • Printing facilities
  • Admin support
  • Conference and meeting rooms
  • Community spaces for socializing

When you opt for hot desking at shared workspaces, you can choose when to work from home and when to work in an office-like setup.

Shared workspaces are professionally managed, so noise is kept at a minimum, and there are as few distractions as possible. However, that doesn’t mean that you’ll be working in a windowless room with nothing but your computer.

You get your own desk in an open-plan office, amongst other professionals seeking some respite from their home offices. At the Cross Campus locations, members have access to an outdoor workspace, freshly brewed coffee and kombucha, meditation rooms and showers. All three of our shared workspaces are dog-friendly, so you can bring your furry pal along to keep you company.

Other benefits of hotdesking in a shared workspace include:

  • Flexibility: You can work in a shared space whenever you feel it. Most coworking spaces that offer hot desking do not require long-term contracts. At the very least, you get the option to “rent” a desk for a day, a week or longer, depending on your needs.
  • Improved collaboration: Hot desking with colleagues or friends also helps facilitate knowledge-sharing. Connecting in person makes communication easier and more natural, and misunderstandings that are common in chat and email conversations are prevented.
  • Access to office tools and equipment: You don’t have to buy your own printer, scanner or projector because a typical shared office is fully equipped with the tech and tools you need, as well as fast internet.

Discover Your New Favorite Place to Work

Cross Campus offers hot desking and a variety of other workspace options to meet every need, from as-needed access and a shared workspace to your own private office. Our coworking spaces in Los Angeles, Pasadena and El Segundo are a favorite amongst entrepreneurs, freelancers and even law firms.
