As we continue into the 21st century, it seems like there are new technological advances on a daily basis, and those advances are beginning to embed themselves into the workplace. Technology in the Workplace is truly changing the way we work — we are no longer chained to our desks, but rather always have a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone in hand.
There are a few cons to having technology fill a prominent role in your business, but the advantages definitely outweigh the disadvantages. The primary drawbacks include dependency, the constant need to upgrade and possible negative effects on workplace relationships. While the benefits include, but are not limited to, changing communication, increasing efficiency and motivating employees.
Finding ways to integrate technology in the workplace and work environment is key to keeping up with the trends that are pushing the workplace to be more and more involved and invested in ever-changing technologies.
