Atomic Sky hosted the WA Government’s initiative launch earlier this week at Tech Hub, to promote the introduction of two hot desking centres for public sector staff.
Andy Lamb hosted Premier Colin Barnett and Deputy Premier Liza Harvey, who announced the policy to the media and gained insight into Tech Hub operations.
The hot desking centres, with proposed locations of Joondalup and Fremantle, are designed to cut travel times and provide more flexible working arrangements for employees living remotely.
Ms Harvey stated in a press release, “if successful, other hot desking Centre locations will be considered at Osborne Park, Cannington and Midland”.
Currently, the plan is to set up in new government office buildings currently under construction.
Andy says, “it’s great to have the state government tapping into the startup and high growth sectors, and utilising infrastructure to facilitate the changing culture of work”.
Atomic Sky heavily promotes the use of coworking and hot desks, and currently operates out of Tech Hub. The driven and innovative environment of a startup/small business coworking space promotes inspired thinking, which is at the forefront of the Atomic Sky team’s workshops, presentations and ethos.
The increase of the hot desking culture can only provide more leverage for economic growth, with it’s proven ability to improve morale, motivation and balance. Introduction to family based areas of Perth will help spread the concept, and promote longevity for the coworking methodology.
