Optimizing Hot Desking for Productivity: A Comprehensive Guide

The landscape of office dynamics has undergone a significant transformation post-pandemic, with remote work becoming the norm and a surge in hybrid work models. Navigating through these changes, it’s evident that three key trends are shaping the employee experience worldwide:

  1. Hybrid Work is Here to Stay: The blended approach of working from both home and the office is now a permanent fixture.
  2. Quality Onsite Tools and Technology: Companies are expected to provide attractive tools and superior technology in the office compared to remote setups.
  3. Seamless Experience is Essential: Employees demand easy desk booking, efficient hot desking, and seamless connectivity with local work tools.

With this framework in mind, the AV aspect emerges as a critical factor in creating a successful and desirable workplace. Investing in workplace equipment and tailoring a bespoke hot desk experience is pivotal for engaging employees and making the commute worthwhile.

Your Most Utilized Desk Equipment Matters

The often-overlooked centerpiece of the office experience is the desk display, which is used more than 90% of the time during office hours. Opting for a subpar or mediocre hot desk solution can incur unforeseen costs, both financially and user satisfaction. Choosing displays from different vendors, dealing with installation complexities, and managing updates and firmware can become a logistical nightmare. Furthermore, the compatibility issues arising from varied laptop/desktop hardware, ports, and operating systems contribute to employee frustration and reduced productivity.

There is no worse feeling for a user to commute into the office only to find that not all the necessary hardware is being detected from their laptop, that each individual hub, camera, and external item on top of the display is different with different settings for quick meetings during that field day, or that the display doesn’t support the right cabling because they can only USB-c or HDMI to connect to it! Or worse yet, key components are missing altogether! This snowball effect results in unhappy, frustrated, and unproductive employees who will slowly desert the hot desk areas. That is the reason why simplicity of use and connectivity matters the most.
