Some organizations use an unassigned seating strategy to allow for more flexibility in their workplace. Unassigned seating means there isn't a 1:1 ratio of employees and desks.
Oftentimes, employees have unassigned seats when they don't need to have a workstation designated specifically to them for an entire day. Mobile employees (Managers, sales people on calls, traveling employees, or employees who work from home part of the week) are prime examples for the type of employee who could benefit from unassigned seating. Instead of having one desk, employees with unassigned seating could instead use hot desks or hotel desks.
Unassigned seating plans are used to improve space efficiency and increase employee autonomy
