Some great hacks for your Microsoft Outlook account
It would be fair to say that the average office job has changed a lot in the last 40 or 50 years.
The development of so many different technologies has meant that the only things staying consistent in the average workspace are desks and chairs.
Just take a look at this post from Social Media Week which explores the evolution of the office.
It includes some milestone changes, such as the jump from typewriters to computers and traditional phones to conference calls.
In the last 10-15 years, the big change in every workplace has been the improvement in wireless technology.
We have quite quickly gone from a world of desktop computers and floppy discs to tablets and cloud storage.
Ultimately, what this means for the modern office worker is that we can do more on the move than ever before.
Only a few years ago, travelling for work generally meant that you were out of action for the day. However, that is far from the case now.
With public wifi available almost anywhere, we can work on mobile devices and get a similar amount of work finished from the comfort of a train, plane or coffee shop.
These improvements also mean more people are able to work from home. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2015 that in the USA, at least 24% of employed people either work partly or full time from home.
Improving Existing Tech
While it’s almost hard to remember a time without it, email has really improved because of recent tech developments.
A great example of this is smartphone apps. Platforms like these allow us to communicate as effectively and efficiently from a portable device as we could at a desktop.
There are also more features to email apps than ever before, offering more integrated usage with other apps.
However, because emails are a vital part of any job, the process can be a bit time consuming and tedious.
