Hot desking in the Sydney CBD is becoming increasingly popular amongst business owners and professional contractors. The reason for this is the convenience and affordability that comes with leasing a desk for a day or week; all in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, right at Barangaroo.
If you’re thinking about hot desking in Sydney CBD, take a look at our list of pros and cons before choosing where to work:
Pros of hot desking in Sydney CBD
When you book a hot desk at our Sydney CBD office, you’ll get to enjoy the convenience of being close to public transport (buses and trains), as well as private parking. Our location in Kent Street is easily accessible from Wynyard Station, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour (this also means we have some pretty amazing views of Sydney Harbour and the rest of the city).
Another benefit of hot desking is having access to all that office equipment and support that you probably wouldn’t have at home. Things like enterprise-level printers and lightning-fast internet. As well as access to breakout rooms for every need, meeting rooms and even a full reception team.
Of course, the biggest benefit to hot desk users is the flexibility of being able to pay for only the time and space you need. This helps to cut down overheads, yet you still get all the benefits of working in a professional and distraction-free setting.
Cons of hot desking in Sydney CBD
Like most things in life, if it’s too good to be true; it probably is. Hot desking does come with its own set of challenges (but what doesn’t?). The biggest obstacle to business owners who hot desk is not having all their “things” at arms reach. If you’re reliant on paper files and other hardcopy documents, it might need a change in mindset to start relying more on digital files on your laptop. It might also take a little more organisation the night before to ensure you’ve got everything you need for the next day.
Another consideration is, due to the ad hoc nature of hot desk users, you’re never guaranteed access to the same desk. This might be a challenge if you’re a creature of habit and don’t like the idea of using a different desk each time you visit. If this is you, booking a serviced office might be a better solution; where you lease a dedicated, private and secure office (which can be locked when you leave).
