Whether you call it “hoteling,” “hotdesking” or mobile working, the practice of having floating workstations in your office, so no employee is tied down to one specific desk, appears to be gaining in popularity.

Harvard Business Review recently discussed the way that Citi has redesigned its own office using this principle, grouping workers together according to their different disciplines, in separate sections called “neighborhoods.”

Although this convention has certainly been seen in different tech offices, especially in places like the UK, it’s a flexible enough practice that different companies can find their own spin to put on it. For example, Citi created color-coded areas based on the young adult science-fiction book series “Divergent,” which imagines a society where citizens are separated into different factions. It is attempting to test this out in a pilot program that is expected to lead to further collaboration between the workers.

Quartz recently spoke to furniture company vice president Jennifer Busch, who referenced the rise of this approach and linked it to new trends in technology. Because workers can do more with their mobile devices, she says, a stationary position at a desk is less necessary.

“It used to be that when you referred to the mobile worker you were talking about a person who works outside the office,” she said. “Now you’re just as likely to be referring to someone that’s in the office environment, but they’re mobile because their technology has untethered them from their desk.”

With the non-specific desk arrangement becoming a popular office layout, it’s worth considering in your company. Used workstations and desks may provide a viable solution to create this type of work layout in your office.
