Freedom and Flexibility for the Workforce, Profitability and Sustainability for the Workplace

Permanently Assigned Space

In an advanced workplace strategy, the tracking and measurement of desks or workspaces assigned to people who are always in the office is known as permanently-assigned space. This differs from space temporarily assigned to mobile workers who are often working outside the office. The latter is known as hoteling. The measurement and management of permanently-assigned space and temporarily-assigned or hoteling space provides almost the highest levels of efficiency and sustainability. Using reverse hoteling to utilize permanently-assigned space on the few days when those workers are not in the office maximizes efficiency, cost reduction and sustainability.
