The traditional work space has already undergone changes due to technology. Communications between employer and staff take place via computer, Skype, webinars and phone conferences on a boardroom basis. Freelancers, telecommuters and individuals that work contractually have used these methods to decrease the amount of time involved in assignments and increase production time. Individuals spend less time on basic necessities such as travel and these self-disciplined workers are able to contribute in a timely effective manner. Elder professionals can also take advantage of telecommuting as in cases of disability and decreased mobility. Smart work centers can prolong the age that elder workers are able to contribute to their employers. So how does smart work centers fit into the already active telecommuting schedule of independent contractors and salaried workers? A smart work center provides teleconferencing and supervision of workers individually and caters to the needs of every individual by providing company benefits that are exempt under normal circumstances to independent contractors with social services such as childcare services. In this way smart work centers operate as community centers by facilitating recreational and personal needs.Convenience is provided by smart work centers for the employer who will have more access to employees visually and at all times. Smart work centers also lower the cost of the traditional brick and mortar building since they can be used on assignment whenever employees are available to work.Companies are able to benefit from having their in house workers and out of house workers co-habit the same workspace and co-work together. Both teams are able to compare and share information more quickly breaking down walls of distance and experience. Whether you find employment virtually or traditionally salaried workers like telecommuters benefit by receiving flexible work schedules, the fusion of work life and home life and accessibility to work facilities that are near their home communities.Will smart work centers foster a community mindset to work or will the employees and contractors continue to use their individual talents, creativity and skill and employers retain employee satisfaction in the virtual world? One of the reasons why workers enjoy what they do is because of what they are able to accomplish and be rewarded for on an individual level as well as on the company level. Regardless of benefit smart work centers are no substitute for the person of employer, manager or supervisor knowing their workers personally and learning what motivates them. Interacting with workers outside of the television or computer screen will always take precedence over impersonal methods of communication and work.
