Paul Levy will present early findings of desk research and a literature review on Hot Desking. With the emergence of virtual working during the Covid-19 Pandemic, many organisations are looking to realise the continued benefits and meeting the reported challenges of working from home/remote working.
Paul will present some of the early assessments, influencer views and limited academic reporting on the specific “return to the workplace” approach known as “hot desking”. This is not a new concept nor set of practices, but some impact analysis and concepts of “Best practice” in hot desking have been published and results reported. Paul (a hot desker for over a decade) will attempt to distil some of this into a hopefully useful summary as well as assessment of the significant benefits and challenges and problems. There will be plenty of time for Q and A as well as discussion.
Paul Levy is a Senior Lecturer at the Brighton Business School, University of Brighton. He is a member of CENTRIM and the Responsible Enterprise and Innovation Subject group. He specialises in digital innovation and virtual working and is the author of several books including Digital Inferno and The Poetry of Change.
