As the number of freelancers in the UK continues to grow, 2 million at the last count, so does the trend for hot desking.
So what are the benefits of hot desking?
If you’re new to the whole idea of coworking then you’ll want to know how it can benefit you. Well, if you’re a freelancer, entrepreneur or heading up a startup business then it can do wonders for your productivity. Rather than spending all day working alone at home or in a coffee shop where it’s easy to get distracted, you can spend your time surrounded by like-minded professionals in a dedicated coworking space. Best of all, with hot desking, there’s no commitment – you just turn up, pay for your time and get to work.
