Hot Desks

A relatively recent phenomenon, hot desking basically means that, instead of part time or mobile employees being given their own personal desk they share a limited number of communal workstations. It is common in workplaces where employees might work from home most of the time but are required to be in the office once a week or a few times a month.

Topaz provides hot desking solutions that ensure these communal workstations will work for a variety of employees instead of just a single employee. With Australia wide delivery your Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Canberra or Hobart workplace can begin offering hot desks to those employees who don’t work the standard Monday to Friday.

If you are thinking about adopting a hot desking program in your workplace, it’s important that you involve your team in the process. After all, they’re the ones who are going to be the most affected by the change.

When trying to determine who should hot desk, look at actual workstation usage (who tends to be less desk-bound?), patterns of attendance over the week and year, and consider the IT requirements you’ll need to accommodate.

What are the benefits of using hot desks & workstations?

Employees and employers who only work from the office occasionally will enjoy many hot desking benefits. These include:


It might only be a brief encounter, but hotdesking can actually give employees a chance to meet coworkers that they might not otherwise. This can lead to a more social workplace culture, as well as helping them to forge personal connections that can benefit across departments.


With so many employees working from home, on the move or from another location, hot desking sometimes really makes sense. Why give someone a desk that will only be used twice a month? This is a practice that is tailored for offices and employees that are flexible and mobile.


Adopting a hot desk office can help you to save space and, by extension, save money. You won’t need to purchase as many workstations and you may not need to lease as big an office space. Ideally, you’ll take the money you have saved and invest it back into the business.
