A trend that needs little explanation as technology becomes the great workplace enabler. How we work today will alter significantly as technology advances and new, more efficient ways of working are introduced.
As a result, companies are increasingly investigating ways that they can integrate technology into different areas of the office, including furniture with screens to facilitate presentations and collaboration to smart receptions and pods that enable staff to use thin client devices.
This has allowed staff to move further away from traditional desk based work, decreasing the personal space needed per worker (another trend). Embedded technology facilitates an increased level of flexibility enabling staff to work, present and/or collaborate almost anywhere in what will be a fully digitally enabled work environment.
