Dedicated desks, also known as fixed desks, are an organizational workspace arrangement in which the users have a designated space to work as long as the membership at the coworking space is valid.
As opposed to availing a free spot, dedicated desks offer a more settled and reliable workspace as a specific desk is reserved for the user to work on each day. This particular variant of coworking space offers the best of both worlds as the employees can focus on their work in a quiet, personalized office space amidst the vibrant community that thrives within the coworking space.
Designed to offer privacy and convenience, such desks are usually assigned in the relatively private area of the coworking space such that it minimizes the external noise, enabling you to maintain a high level of productivity and concentration.
Let’s take a quick look at why Jack, who is an aspiring entrepreneur, prefers to subscribe for a dedicated desk at the coworking space:
Jack runs a small scale e-commerce business. He comes to the coworking venue every day and occupies the exact same desk for work. He conveniently leaves his personal belongings such as the laptop, wireless keyboard, and headphones on his desk and has a small cabinet that he uses to store stuff like stamps, letterheads, and notepad. Having an assigned space to work allows him the chance to concentrate on his business while the space is budget-friendly and offers strong communal support.
Benefits of Dedicated Desk
Dedicated desks are an ideal arrangement for those who like the coworking model yet are not willing to sacrifice their personal space and privacy. A designated space keeps one away from the inquisitiveness of fellow coworkers but allows them to enjoy the perks of belonging to a community.
Fixed desks save the hassle of reaching the office early and the subsequent disappointment of finding out that the desired desk is gone. Thus working from an assigned desk is a convenient, consistent, and comfortable arrangement for those who have transient workspace needs.
Unlike hot-desks, dedicated desks offer a secure space for belongings that eliminates the need to carry out the belongings at the end of the workday. They are usually equipped with everything you need to make yourself at home including a chair, trash can, and lockable filing cabinet. This variant of coworking adds a unique sense of permanence to the work-life of employees, which enables them are better able to focus and concentrate on work.
Besides privacy and permanence, dedicated desks help nurture cordial work relationships. This is because the same coworkers with fixed desk positions interact with each other on a frequent basis and over the course of time, friendships take the form of business relationships as well as partnerships.
Dedicated desks allow you to choose a workstation according to your professional and personal needs along with the chance to decorate and customize your space to make it comfortable. One can make space a positive and personalized vibe that would put one at ease, and in turn, boost creativity. For instance, you can have a family photo that would remind you of your loved ones or put a calendar to help you schedule your meetings.
