Jeevan Grewal, the senior director of Nexxtech, begins his day by waking up and eating breakfast.

6:45 a.m.
He walks to his on-campus office building.

6:50 a.m.
The sensors detect his presence upon his arrival to work. A facial recognition scan analyzes his facial features and confirms his position in the work.

7:00 a.m.
He places his Smartphone on his desk, an interactive multi-tough surface, and it instantly begins charging. The agenda for his day is projected on a wall and he organizes his schedule with a flip of his finger.

7:30 a.m.
Mr. Grewal attends his first virtual meeting of the day via hologram, with co-workers stationed in countries across the world. The members at this meeting input ideas from their separate locations by contributing suggestions to the “Idea Network”.

9:00 a.m.
Mr. Grewal attends a workshop which trains him to learn new languages and better understand different cultures.

10:00 a.m.
Mr. Grewal takes a break. He goes to a rooftop garden to relax from his busy day.

10:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Because Nexxtech is currently working on improving their current operating system, Mr. Grewal meets with the IT department to discuss their plans.

2:00 p.m.
Mr. Grewal accompanies the IT department to Boston Pizza – a free resteraunt, along with many others, located on campus for employees.

3:00 p.m.
Mr. Grewal makes a daily visit to the “Idea Network” program to ensure employees complete their duties in a timely and efficient manner. Based on their performance, he chooses who to hire and fire.

4:00 p.m.
Mr. Grewal signs out for the day and goes home to work from his home office. Technically, his work day has not yet finished because he still has to keep up with his work. The Futuristic Office
