Everyone’s got their own ideas about what the workplace of the future will be like. We decided to join in and come up with our own predictions.
This comic was created by Elizabeth Pich, half of the talent behind War and Peas.
Some workplace trends are better than others. Take for example the open office: originally praised by designers and architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, the open office plan was meant to remove mental barriers placed on workers through physical separation.
These open office plans have endured since their inception in the 90s and even grown in popularity, partially due to their cost-effective use of space. Despite employer fervor, there is a growing scholarship pointing out the design’s flaws: lots of distractions, stress-inducing and collaboration suppression, to name a few.
Despite their flaws, workplace trends will endure. Some might even actually help us. No matter what you may think of workplace trends, I think we can all agree – dog yoga is a great idea.
I’m over workplace trends. What about more comics?
In addition to putting out a new comic every Thursday, we’ve got some great comics in the catalog:
If you’re a War and Peas fan, you’re in luck. We’ve got a great comic about management tips from beyond the grave plus one about why robots might not be after your job after all.
If you work for any type of agency, you’ve probably had your fair share of these types of clients. We’ve also done a comic guessing what the world would be like if it were created by a programmer. Or another epic piece about how to save the princess using different programming languages.
Keep your eyes peeled or like us on Facebook, if you want these comics delivered directly to you! We also post on LinkedIn if you want to pretend you’re doing work.
If you have any cool ideas that we could put into a comic, let us know in the comments below. We promise to add you as an easter egg when it comes out.
Until then – keep on trackin’!
