Break Out of the Box
There was a time when “9 to 5” meant being tethered to a desktop in a 4 x 4 cubicle.
But mobile technology has broken down the office walls. Invigorated by the mass adoption of smartphones and tablets, individuals have become used to accessing information and sharing ideas on the move.
