The rapid advancement of new amous technology, the sharing economy and the fall of siloed space, will have profound impact on the spaces and places that we create. Yet what is driving this change is the desire to enable people to live and work in optimum conditions. Hence, the rise of the machine age and the human factor. These two streams are converging in the workplace and changing not only the tools we use, but when, where and how we work as well. Today most companies, regardless of their sector, consider themselves tech companies, so understanding how technology is impacting us affects everyone.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explore the emerging tech trends impacting work, workers and workplace.

  • Understand how they are impacting companies in the technology sector and beyond.

  • Discover how companies and their workspace need to shift to stay relevant in the future.
