How our locked storage box can help your firm to implement flexible working

Locked storage box being used on a desk in an office

Say goodbye to traditional chunky lockers and hello to our new versatile, portable and secure lockable storage – The Lockabox One. Post pandemic the traditional office environment is on it’s way out of fashion. With more and more employers embracing a hybrid working situation. But what does this mean for offices? How can employers create the best of both worlds for their employees, ensuring flexible yet personal space. And how can our locked storage box help?

Introducing Hot Desking

Hot Desking is the new business buzzword. But what does it actually mean? Well, quite simply it is a workplace system in which desks are used by different people at different times on an ad hoc basis. Meaning firms that are embracing hybrid working do not have hundreds of desks being unused daily and taking up much valued space. Instead employees have no permanent desk but can work in the office under a hot desk system, they just book the space and the desk is theirs for the day! 

However a common issue with hot desking is the question of where to store personal items. Here is where our Lockabox One comes in. Our locked storage box can be used for storing all employees’ equipment, when they are taking breaks such as lunch. Simply place all items inside, set the code, and your box is locked. The box can now only be accessed by the person who knows the code, giving employees much needed peace of mind.

What’s mine is mine 

How often at work do you go to do a task and return to find your calculator gone from your desk, and instead in the hands of one of your colleagues, who is “just borrowing it” ? Pre-covid this was just plain annoying, but in these times it also brings with it the worry of contamination. Our locked storage box allows employees to store all stationary in one place, with the reassurance that once it is safely locked away, no one else will be able to access it. Thus limiting the risk of contamination and spread of infection, often amplified with hot desking. 

In addition with hot desking it is essential there is a clean desk policy whereby at the end of the day the desk can be left as tidy as possible so that it can be thoroughly cleaned down and sanitised for the next person to use. Our locked storage box allows for all essential equipment to be placed inside and is then easily portable to wherever necessary, whether this is a storage space or to your home.

Gifting your employees a locked storage box is the way forward to increase wellbeing 

Gifting employees a Lockabox One will help your organisation to implement hot desking and hybrid working seamlessly. It will give employees reassurance and an element of personalisation when transitioning to a new way of working.
