106 blog posts
A reserved desk or dedicated desk is a desk or space in a co-working environment which is just for you. At workplace you will have your own dedicated booth, desk, filing cabinet and lamp within an open plan area.
A reserved desk is often a great transition step between hot desking and getting your own private office. So what are the advantage between these two options and is it the right time to consider this as an option?
What are the benefits of a reserved desk vs hot desking?
There is nothing worse than making your way to the office, heading over to your favourite spot but it has been taken by somewhere else. If you find yourself always choosing the same spot in the open plan area. If having to decide where to sit each day stresses you out. Then maybe a dedicated desk could be you.
Familiarity & personalisation
Having your own space means you can make you’re your own a little. If you need to feel at home in your workplace this could be ideal for you. Pictures of loved ones, holiday snaps to give you some drive through the day. Industry magazines or being able to spread out your array of stationary. Whatever your style of working is; messy or clean, clinical or personal you will have a dedicated space to make sure it stay just how you like it. No one will sit in or use your space.
If you have a lot of things you need in order to get your job done then a dedicated desk is ideal. The filing cabinet storage means you don’t have to lug those books, papers, stationary etc, back and forth between home and the office each day. It might be a simple thing but it can make all the difference!
A dedicated desk provides just that extra bit of privacy compared to hot desking. If from time to time you will need to be dealing with sensitive information or if the thought of people seeing your screen makes you nervous then a dedicated desk could be the solution
What are the benefits of a reserved desk vs a home or private office?
Social & Networking opportunities
Sitting in an open plan office means there is a bit of a buzz rather than being by yourself in a home office or private office. You will be exposed to people from a range of different companies each day. These may even be complimentary to your business and provide opportunities to do business together
For one man bands or small groups of co-workers a few adjacent dedicated desks could be a cost effective solution for those who can’t quite afford an office yet. It means that you are guaranteed to be able to sit together and you can swap between members or staff as you need to.
For companies which have premises elsewhere but needs a city centre base for staff then dedicated desk could be the perfect solution. You will always have the space dedicated to your company but they can be used by anyone who is in town.
