New Research Reveals Hot Desking is Not So Hot

One of the hottest workplace trends of recent years could actually be doing more harm than good, according to new research from a leading real estate firm.

Savills asked 1,000 workers for their thoughts on hot desking and the results revealed that just 12% believe that they are more productive when sharing workstations with colleagues.

Shockingly, more than 50% of workers said that hot desking actually made them less productive and a whopping 60% said they would specifically choose a personal workstation if given the choice.

Despite the UK having the highest proportion of open plan offices in Europe, British businesses are most likely to confess that the style of working has decreased productivity.

While hot desking is a bugbear of many workers, the primary professional problem remains noise levels, with 83% of respondents reporting this as their top workplace woe.

Only a third of those surveyed said their office set-up supports their health. At Fetcham Park, we believe workplace wellbeing should be a key consideration for every business.
