Today’s businesspeople are often on the go. Gone are the days of 9-5 work hours for many organizations, coupled with the fact that society generally is globally interconnected.

For many, as long as a work smartphone is available (and a laptop for complicated tasks), many businesspeople can work both remotely and on the move. Work places, to adapt to the global culture, generally have had to embed this mentality in their workplace, as well as accepting the advancement of technology.

As with the advancement of technology and the fact that many people work internationally, such as taking conference calls with people from Dubai, London and San Francisco in one conference call, the world’s corporate culture has had to adapt.

This has also meant the work place has had to be flexible and allow for the traditional desk in a cubicle or even corner office view to go away. For instance, open work planning and hot desking is so common now, where even senior executives in many organizations also hot desk and do not have their own office, as economically it doesn’t make sense to lease nor have more office space if they are not physically there that often.

As email with work phones and the ability to call anyone via various methods (such as with Skype, LoopUp, and other forms of communication), businesspeople are less tied to a physical location and can move around more. This has allowed for businesspeople to work literally anywhere and, on occasion, have a moment to catch up with emails or phone calls in between meetings.

For many, although having a smartphone and a laptop can allow for people to work anywhere, there are three places that have been consistent for many in recent memory where busy businesspeople are often seen catching up with emails, making phone calls, or taking conference calls.

They might even be making a sneaky call to their loved one or children because they might be late for a private engagement, such as their kid’s basketball tournament or their husband or wife’s birthday dinner.
