“We use our building optimally through hot desking”
A good, professional development of employees is a key condition for the Municipality of Deventer to keep on delivering high quality. That is why they provide a stimulating working environment and give employees the space to organise their work flexibly. This brings performance and pleasure into balance. FlexWhere helps with that.
‘In order to use the available space as optimally as possible, the planning for the new building of the City Hall has focused heavily on hot desking. We have more than eight hundred colleagues. If we were to give them all their own desk, that would take up a lot of space. The flexible use of desk spaces gives us extra square meters of workspace.
‘Find a colleague’ feature is important for hot desking
Because no one has a fixed workspace, it is essential to be able to find out who is where in the building. FlexWhere’s ‘find a colleague’ feature shows this clearly and quickly. Using this user-friendly and easy-to-implement system, you can see where a colleague is at work at the touch of a button.
Outside the office too, thanks to the mobile app, which we have been using recently. This makes collaboration much more efficient. We used to email and call a lot. Now we visit one another. This way, some matters are better coordinated. This creates short lines and faster decisions.
Workplaces that align with the activities
Another advantage is that FlexWhere helps us to find free workspace quickly, which is suitable for the work we have to do on that day. People who need to concentrate find a quiet space to work.
If you have a project meeting, you find a co-workplace. FlexWhere shows us an overview of all the free and occupied workspaces, meaning that everyone can get down to work immediately in a suitable space. All in all, a useful application, which we use a lot.”
