A Peek into the Office of the Future

January 17, 2013

By Michael Baaden

If the last two decades have taught office workers anything, it is that change is a permanent feature of the traditional office. As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, workers can expect a number of practices and technologies to disappear as new ways of working and processing information take their place.

Looking five years ahead, industry watchers expect fax machines, desktop computers, and even USB thumb drives to fade into obscurity.

In terms of work habits, it appears that the power suit will also vanish from the business scene. In addition, while many people already work according to a flex-time schedule, this trend is expected to accelerate and perhaps dominate the work world in the coming years.

Remote working will also continue to gain steam, paving the way for fewer commuters and virtually eliminating the need for standard cubicles and corner offices.
