hot desking

Using a set of cubicles for mobile workers who come into the office from time to time. It is similar to hoteling, but reservations are not required. People come in and sit down at the next available seat, plug into the network and go to work, which means a vice president might sit next to a junior trainee at any given time. See hoteling.


Using office space on an as-needed basis like a hotel room. Telecommuters reserve office space ahead of time for trips to the office. See hot desking, virtual company and telecommuter.
