We talk a lot about what it means to be modern workplace here at AskCody. We’re always taking a microscope to the latest office trends so we can figure out what works, what doesn’t, and what it would take to make something that doesn’t actually work. You follow?

There are plenty of movements in recent years that have totally flipped corporate culture on its head. I don’t need to tell you about the death of the cubicle farm or the rise of the WFH wave. But as we’ve written about before, what works for one company (or even one department), does not necessarily work for all.

The key is be able to respond intelligently and thoughtfully to the flexibility that today’s workforce craves without letting the office slide into a free-for-all of open spaces, zero privacy, and a frustrating search for open resources.

Hot desking has become a popular practice for growing companies as a way to save money, improve efficiency, and create a more agile work environment for their employees. Office space can be pricey, and in more traditional office models space is often under-utilized. Hot desking capitalizes on the growing agility in today’s workplace to help save companies money by moving away from the 1-to-1 seating model in the office. Rather than have assigned desks, employees operate out of an open workspace where they can reserve a desk for the day on-the-spot.

That’s because the changes they’re making will be felt for generations to come.
