What is Workspace?
22 Jun 2022
Excuse the pun in the title, but “workspace” today refers to the unique area where employees may work, and it refers to our innovative workspace booking solution (the Workspace app) that helps efficiently manage various types of workspaces.
Workspaces and the technology required to manage them has evolved. The pandemic fast-tracked solidifying a flexible workforce, and as a result, most all employers are needing to provide different types of workspaces to accommodate full-time, part-time, remote and telecommute employees and visitors.
The 7 Different Types of Workspaces You May Need to Manage
There are different types of workspaces, different classifications of employees, and different types of workforce rules (remote, full-time, part-time, telecommute, etc.). And when it comes to efficient workspace management – providing safe, collaborative, enjoyable spaces while also ensuring organizational waste and overhead costs are minimized – simplifying booking workspaces is key.
Workspaces you may need to manage on-going include:
- Assigned workspaces (e.g., cubicles or stand-alone desks)
- Breakout spaces
- Co-working spaces
- Conference rooms or meeting rooms
- Creative spaces
- Hot desks (Flexible desks)
- Employee break spaces
At-home workspaces are important as well, but for this blog, let’s focus on those you need to manage within your physical office location.
