In the past 10 or so years, offices in Washington, D.C. have been changing their look by opening their spaces, offering more amenities, and going green. The reason why is that technology in the workplace has evolved, and the workplace has had to evolve with it to keep up.

Marty Caverly, chief investment officer for Resource Real Estate, Inc., said, "It used to be when you left the door of the office, you’re off the clock. Now, we’re always on. So, the environment has to be different."

It’s not just tech companies in Silicon Valley that are upping their game when it comes to workplace design. In the D.C. area, offices are using their spaces as a recruiting tool, especially for Millennials.
