Well, it is indeed the new norm, and it is right here at your doorstep. Techies or software professionals from the city can now book their seats in offices in advance. The concept of booking a workstation in advance in case an employee decides to work from the office is now a reality that one cannot avoid.
Now that the hybrid model of working has taken over the IT sector, many companies are looking at different mechanisms to accommodate employees safely whenever they plan to attend office. The most popular among these is the ‘book your seat’ concept. The companies, too, are in a dilemma as to how to go about the process. As of now, they have realized that it is not possible to fit all the employees at one go like in the past.
For starters, they have to ensure that physical distancing is maintained and also have a count of how many employees are present in the office on a given day. So, they have decided to adopt the ‘book your workstation’ concept. This not only makes the office space a safer zone, but it also helps provide enough space and makes the office employee-friendly.
So, the companies have now come up with internally developed software application that is making it easier for employees to book their seats in advance to ensure physical distancing. This will also help keep a count of the employees attending the office at any given point in time. The seat booking tool helps the employees and the company plan their schedule, says Krishna Yedula, secretary, Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC).
One can pre-book a seat for a day or for a few days with the tool. It is quite useful if the employees want their laptop upgraded or install some software at the office.
