With technology, the office environment has changed so much throughout the years. In your years of doing business, what changes have you witnessed? And, how much of that change has to do with the use of technology? Here are some of the biggest ways that technology has changed the workplace.

Filing Cabinets

How many filing cabinets have you ever had in your office? While companies traditionally had a ton of filing cabinets, often kept in safe locations, they just aren’t as common anymore. Now, there are cloud and document storage solutions that often replace filing cabinets. This is due to having secure digital environments for your documents to be stored and easily found, instead of filing through a cabinet.

Conference Room Gatherings

Miss the days where everyone squeezed into the conference room? Well, now everyone can meet from different locations and even different time zones, with the use of video conferencing. Even if everyone can’t physically make it to a meeting, scheduling them has gotten so much easier.

Traditional Work Desk Accommodations

Remote technology has made it possible for employees to do their work from anywhere, whether that be at home, in the office, on the beach, or ANYWHERE. 

Landline Telephones

Imagine being tethered to a landline phone in this day and age. Crazy, right? Cell phones make it possible for employees to be able to reach each other from anywhere. Smartphones also are a way that work can get done on the go.
