Once upon a time, going to work implied commuting from your home to your office, and -- most importantly -- implied that everybody had to have their "office space". It used to be a desk. Then it became a desk with a PC. Now, it has often evolved to a desk with a laptop. What's next?
The next step is called "freedom": it implies that you can work wherever you are, whenever you need to.
Mind you, the world will always need receptionists; and a warehouse will always need people who actually take the goods from the shelves or greet you at the checkout till.
