If you allow employees the choice of working from home and also the luxury of a dedicated seat, the real estate efficiencies on an average, are likely to be less than adopting unassigned seating. But you can still be smart about it. For example, seats/workstations can be shared between 2 (or more colleagues) and still dedicated. A seat can be used by Shalini on Mondays and Wednesdays (while she works from home through the rest of the week), and the same seat can be used by Ravi on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, while he works from home on Mondays and Wednesdays. There are other ways of reducing the seat count, even without adopting unassigned seating. This needs to be customized to your organisation’s goals and needs, as there will be multiple dependent variables. This works best with the support of seat booking apps and other AI based apps.
