World Wide Web (1996)

By 1996, it became obvious to most organizations that having an online presence was not optional. When people became more familiar with browsers like Netscape Navigator and the benefits of two-way online communication, this led to e-commerce, worldwide group communications and the creation of “dot-com” addresses. In 2002, Web 2.0 emerged and brought new ways of sharing and exchanging content. The boom of user-generated and user-edited websites led to service-oriented startups thriving in a newly democratized web. It was easier to search and use, and led to rapid popularization among businesses.

Even before the emergence of technology, communication has been at the forefront of relationship building and business development. The changes in communication technology over the last four decades have been revolutionary. Now with more millennials in the workforce than baby boomers, the way we work and communicate with one another is changing. Ray Tomlinson’s recent passing further reminds us of how far communication has come since he founded email in 1971 and reset the standard of how we talk to each other.

Today, newer advancements like texting and messaging apps have spurred even more efficiency within workplace communication. We have come a long way since the days of written letters and memos. Even email has become a secondary form of communication in the workplace as chat platforms are taking over. In this slideshow, Kore, a bots-based messaging platform, presents milestones in workplace communication to show how it has evolved and what lies ahead for the future of work.
