Say goodbye to your cubicle and hello to a three-day weekend.

The future workplace is likely to be more flexible in design and scheduling.

That's according to predictions from job placement consultancy Challenger, Gray and Christmas.

Technology improvements and rising energy costs are likely to change the way we work.

The predictions include a four-day work week, as both employers and employees try to cut commuting costs.

Laptops and other high-tech equipment will also open telecommuting opportunities and free workers from the office cubicle.
