This article aims to explain the use of dedicated desks with Office Spaces and some common misconceptions that might exist.
What is it?
A designated desk is a flex desk in which a single person is provided with the option to book this desk 1 month earlier than his co-workers. Why not for ever? You might ask. Well because their desk should be available for others at times of absence.
When should you use it?
To illustrate with an example, someone might be visually impaired and therefore have the need to use a special desk with custom screens. This person should always be able to book this desk prior to the rest. However, this person might be working part-time or work from home occasionally. Hence why this desk should then be made available for others in the office.
When shouldn't you use it?
It is also not recommended to deploy Office Spaces in an office with only designated desks. The main advantages of Vodafone Business Office Spaces are when it's used in a flexible office. Making every desk dedicated to one person removes the ability to improve occupation ratios, office-cost-efficiency, and enhance flexible home-office workflows.
