Tips for Managing Hoteling Stations

Jan 26, 2016 12:02:49 PM / by

The term “mobile” has become somewhat of a nuisance in my opinion. While it allows you to be more flexible, it has affected the work-space balance. Without a proper transition, having employees switch from traditional stations to touchdown stations can be a little rough. Here are some tips for managing hoteling stations:


  1. Set up a reservation system so employees can block out a space of time to use a touchdown station.
  2. Provide a clear “no permanent residence” policy for the spaces designated as touchdown stations. This means persons are not allowed to store personal items (pictures, nick-nacks, food, etc.) within that space.
  3. Install signage in the spaces that define them as touchdown areas.
  4. Re-evaluate your space every couple of months. Are more and more employees working permanently from the hoteling stations? If so, it may be time to reconfigure.
  5. Assign individual file cabinets or cubbies for mobile employees to store items in the office. Often, people just need a place to store folders for current projects; make sure they have an area to do this.
