Our working days seem to be getting longer and longer, however technology is changing the shape of them. It is making our days easier, making our offices more interactive and in some cases eradicating the office completely.
Issue six of Factor Magazine investigates what our future workplaces and working lives will be like.
We look at everything from the new tech that is being employed to help, and in some cases replace, staff to the ways that technology will inhibit working days.
Futurist Jack Uldrich explains how there will be a culture shift that sees us migrating from cities to work in the same place that we live. This, he says, will be reflected in the levels of abundance created by a flexible working day.

There’s a look at how virtual assistants are going to change the way we live and access knowledge, and how they will play an increasingly central role in our lives.

We’ll also look at whether technology is aiding the oppression of workers, and ask when enough will be enough.
