It is human nature to resist change – fear of the unknown generally insights stress and causes us to imagine negative outcomes. No matter the scale, this occurs with change in the workplace as well.

As little as five years ago, most workplaces and office spaces were still stuck in the past, all but using Spinning Jenny’s to get things done. But fast forward to now and buzzwords like virtual spaces, voice control and virtual reality technologies are no longer things you’d find in the Minority Report but everyday additions to the modern world.
