When you walk into an office what are the first things that you notice as you enter the room. You might see a desk with some sort of computer on it or a desk that has nothing on it. You might see a radio or even a surround sound system. There could be a TV in the room somewhere like on the wall, in the wall, or on another desk. You might see some photographs or even one of those digital frames that is actually a picture slide screen. Technology has changed how the office looks and how the tools we use today help us with our tasks.
The computer on the desk might be a laptop, laptops have changed the work environment completely, because now you can take your work home or to a park. No longer does a person have to stay in the office and some businesses have eliminated the office completely. A business can operate from almost anywhere that there is an internet connection. Sometimes the work doesn’t have to be done with the internet and the employee can work while they watch their kids play at a park. This is not a bad thing as long as the work gets done and the employee is self-motivated.
When an employee has been working hard and needs to take a break to refresh themselves they don’t have to leave the office. Technology has provided idle entertainment like, radios, game systems, and social networks. Leaving the office can prove to be a security risk in some professions and if the employee can’t leave they need to unwind somehow to keep sane. The office has changed a lot and maybe will not even exist in the future. It is becoming cheaper to keep employees at home to do the work and companies are saving lots of money not having to pay building costs.
