If you don’t do it, you probably know someone who does: telework. Whether part time or full time, virtual workspaces are becoming more and more commonplace every year. http://www.topmanagementdegree...
s.com has created an infographic detailing what the future may hold for the brick-and-mortar office spaces of America.
It may seem like these ideas come straight from science fiction movies, but realistically, technology is allowing employees to spend more time working remotely, aided by some very advanced tools. From 2005 to 2012, teleworking has increased 79.7%. By 2016, it’s estimated that there will be 3.9 million teleworkers in the United States. With fewer office spaces needed, furniture like cubicles has seen a steep decline in sales; to the tune of 13% in the past thirteen years. New offices will focus on comfortable digs, with a focus on transparency, hospitality, and sustainability. In the future, offices will most likely focus on “telepresence,” which involves employees remotely interacting at the office via webcams and computer screens. Telepresence not only connects employees across the nation, but it cuts travel costs immensely. Companies like HSBC have reported saving thousands of dollars and months of time by integrating telepresence into their workspaces.
Technology companies are scrambling to accommodate these businesses by creating useful tools like electronic white boards which allow employees to present and share information in a digital way that encourages brainstorming and group interaction, standing room meeting tables, walkstations-treadmills with workspaces attached, and BYOD: Bring you own device policies. It’s estimated that 40% of offices that will put such policies into place by 2016.
