Benefits of a 2-Person Reception Desk

One of the benefits of a two-person reception desk is straightforward — you can have two people working there instead of just one!

But it’s also a matter of dimensions and sharing a workspace. By saving space using a double reception desk, you are making your waiting room layout more visually appealing. Moreover, you are encouraging teamwork among your receptionists, thus enhancing productivity. Some of the benefits of a two-person reception desk are:


By using a two-person reception desk, you are being mindful of both your wallet and your floor space. Individual reception stations are expensive and can be much bigger than what is necessary.

Two-person reception desks isn’t simply one reception desk against another- they simply extend the working surface of an individual desk enough to fit two people.

As an example, take the u-shaped reception desk. You extend only one surface without adding the extra two, saving money on an extra desk. Moreover, you’re saving your customers time checking in, since you have two people working where there was only one.

A Balanced Look

Double reception desks effectively make a waiting room look more appealing for a customer. Though it may look tighter than one individual desk, the two people working behind it are the only ones who can really tell it’s smaller. Moreover, having a person on either side balances out the space and makes the size of the desk seem more proportionate to the customer than one person behind a larger station.

Increased Work Efficiency

Two-person reception desks can help improve worker productivity at the front desk. Because both receptionists are working to get customers where they need to go, it saves a single employee from being overburdened. It also nurtures efficiency. If one receptionist sees the other becoming overworked, they can step in and help bear some of the workload. It can work similarly if one receptionist sees the other doing more work. Because humans are naturally competitive, the other will work harder to keep up.

This productivity increase can also be attributed to the teamwork that will occur while having the receptionists work side by side. They can talk with each other about workflows and set up a plan of action if one gets overworked to keep everything going smoothly.
