Technology has changed the way many businesses operate.

Thanks to digital communication, work is sent and instantly received anywhere in the world.  Companies are beginning to see the value represented by hot desk workstations occupied by certain staff, on certain days, at stipulated times.

So, what is a hot desk?  It describes a way for companies to incorporate workstations for employees to use on a rotating basis.  So an employee may work at the office on some days, at their hot desk and spend the rest of the week working from their home office while the hot desk is utilised by another team member.

Terrific resource for employees working from their cars, such as sales people or for freelancers.  Hot desks provide them with access to printing, fax and telephonic services,  internet access, power points for laptops and other devices.  Additionally they support the need for staff flexibility and  are a great idea for cost reduction via space saving & reducing the need for large premises.

Here are 4 colours that you can use to great effect to project your business’ personality & stimulate the kind of productivity you want to achieve in your office.

1. Yellow stimulates creativity, clarity of thought and mental activity.  Love this yellow hot desk solution.

2. Red is a strong colour so great for those selling or making deals.  A student breakout area could benefit from such a stimulating splash of colour too.

3. Blue/Green can be soothing so great choice for writers.  Or to encourage collaboration in a boardroom.

4. Orange encourages socialisation – great for a small office using a team approach to management.  Great Eames inspired chrome & orange office chair.

 Nowadays many boardrooms are high tech spaces with large screens for presentations – sheer blinds can cut glare when necessary whilst maintaining enough light for note taking.
