Is Technology Making Cubicle-Mentality Obsolete?

The days of clocking in, putting your head down at your desk and plugging away, going to five meetings during the day, and clocking out, are very much so dying. The culprit for this shift from cubicle-mentality to a collaborative independence in the workplace is technology. Ahh…what would we do without our beloved smartphones?

Speaking of smartphones, over the last 10-15 years, that has been one of the greatest shifts int he workplace. No longer are employees solely relying on their employer to provide them the most up-to-date computers or technology. In fact, the worker probably has their own set of devices that are up-to-date. Access to anything is now attainable, and it’s simply at the touch of your finger tip.

Not only have smartphones changed the workplace game, but different platforms technology has birthed have also. From communication avenues like email or Slack, it’s never been easier to stay in touch with coworkers to collaborate at every corner. This technology driven communication also allows one to retain a certain level of independence, while staying in touch. That has also led to the ability to work remotely, or not have to be tied down to your cubicle chair each and every day. Technology is changing the way to workforce rolls…are you along for the ride?
