What is workplace reservation?

Workplace reservation refers to the process of scheduling and reserving specific workstations or workspaces in an office environment. It allows employees to pre-book a particular workplace or workspace based on their needs, tasks or preferences.

With workplace reservation, organizations can create flexible work environments and make optimal use of the available workplaces. It is especially relevant in situations where employees do not have fixed assigned workstations, such as hot desking, flexible working or activity-related workplace concepts.

Some important aspects of workplace reservation include:

  1. Reservation system: Implementing a digital reservation system or platform where employees can view, select and reserve available workplaces. This system can provide employees with real-time information about the availability, location, facilities and other relevant details of the workplaces.

  2. Flexibility: Workplace reservation offers employees the flexibility to choose a suitable workspace based on their needs and preferences. This can range from quiet workplaces for concentrated work to conference rooms for team meetings.

  3. Capacity management: Managing the capacity of workplaces and avoiding overbooking or overcrowding. The reservation system allows organizations to manage the number of available workplaces per day, week or time interval and ensure that there is enough space for all employees.

  4. Integration with other systems: Workplace reservation systems can be integrated with other systems, such as calendars, internal communication platforms or personnel management systems. This enables seamless communication and ensures that employees are aware of their reserved workspaces and any changes to the schedule.

  5. Analytics and Optimization: Collecting and analyzing data on workplace utilization and reservations can help optimize workplace design, identify trends, plan for space needs, and make data-driven decisions to improve the work environment.

Workplace reservation can contribute to more efficient use of office space, improve the employee experience, promote collaboration and maximize productivity. It offers employees the possibility to adapt their working environment to the specific tasks and needs, while enabling the organization to use the available space effectively and to optimize costs.
