This is super interesting Matt – I really enjoyed your comparison to the Jetsons and the trip down memory lane. I think technology can be a double-edged sword when it comes to the workplace. It has allowed more efficient communication and a more flexible workplace. However, it is difficult to overlook the fact that expectations in the workplace do not change with technological advancements. Instead, technology allows us to get more work done within the same time frame. I believe it is more of a societal issue of changing the expectations around work in our country, especially in large metropolitan cities like New York. Further, the pandemic has increased pressures to constantly work, given the assumption that we are always available.
