In the past 20 years, we’ve experienced a technological tsunami. First it was email and the World Wide Web. Then it was cell phones, which quickly became PDAs. Soon wireless internet became available not just in our homes, but in restaurants, cafés, libraries, bookstores– even in McDonalds. This technology crept into our home lives as we checked work email from bed and into our vacations as we were able to be plugged in from anywhere.
Soon, companies like Best Buy and General Electric began testing programs that let employees work outside of the office. Women on maternity leave negotiated longer absences, provided they were able to work remotely. Highly skilled programmers and engineers negotiated work-from-home agreements as part of their compensation packages.
Is there any reason for the traditional office anymore?
