Workers can use a desk booking system to reserve which days they’ll be in the office, and what spaces they want to work from. Whether you prefer a standing desk, a focus area, or a seat near the window, desk booking ensures that you always have access to the space that suits your needs.
The global influence of hybrid working is inevitable. As more employees work from home, the question of how to use a physical office space becomes crucial. It is essential to have a solution that organizes who is coming to the office, when they are coming, and where they can work. Desk booking is that solution.
Maintaining a suitable office capacity not only stops the spread of germs, but can keep your office cleaner, quieter, and free of clutter. With desk booking, employees can now flexibly book their shifts at the office, while automatically ensuring a safe capacity in multiple buildings or floors.
Thanks to Mapiq's social connections feature, team members can sync their office shifts with one another, guaranteeing that their time together is spent wisely. By using desk booking, employees always have the time and space to connect—enabling them to efficiently plan meetings, schedule focus days, and creatively collaborate.
Assigning days in which workers have to be in the office can decrease their sense of freedom and autonomy. By embracing hybrid working and desk booking, you signal to your employees that you trust them to perform their work without constant oversight. When employees feel trusted while working from home, 76% reported having lower stress levels and 40% said they were less likely to experience burnout.
