13 3 Offer a variety of spaces Every worker bee is different, so every hive should be unique. Having a variety of spaces means each employee can find what works for them for a specific day or project and roll with it. Some employees might want the closed-door office option while others may want to sit in an open, collaborative space and have those around them spark their creativity. Knowing which type of workers you have in your office and offering the right spaces for them is a KEY best practice when turning to Office Hoteling. 4 Provide attractive, efficient workspaces Once you have an array of spaces to offer, make them inviting! Set up each room to be ergonomically AND aesthetically pleasing. Add splashes of color throughout the building to boost creativity. Provide comfy seating, pillows, etc. for the more open, collaborative spaces. Make sure each workspace is set up for efficiency. That could mean desktop monitors, whiteboards, office supplies, etc. Give your larger workspaces and conference rooms fun names! Add nice, relaxing desktop photos to monitors around the office. Anything that makes the office, the rooms, the spaces more appealing to work in. 5 Make cleaning workspaces a breeze Create a clean desk policy to make sure employees are keeping the workspaces decluttered and always available for someone else. Again, this is a major change for many, so it will take some reminding to keep their personal items with them and not leave anything behind. Having a list of to-dos, like throw away your trash, wipe down desk area, etc. and placing them at each workspace can help ensure each space is cleaned up by the end of the evening. Keep it easy by having wipes, trash cans, and cleaning supplies right at hand for your employees.
