BlackBerry (1999)

The BlackBerry 850, released in January 1999, changed the influence of mobile personal devices in the workplace with its calendar and email functions that enabled people to do business more easily. However, it wasn’t until the BlackBerry 5810 in 2002 that the devices were marketed as phones with email rather than as pagers. In addition, it also offered SMS text, a more advanced calendar system and primitive web browser functionality. Due to the advanced encryption capabilities of the BlackBerry, it is eligible to be used in government positions in additional to corporate business. In the UK, transportation systems implement the devices to improve the communication between control, guards and passengers.

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.
