"Friday the 13th: The Fall of Templars and Rise of Remote Working"

Friday the 13th is a date that has long been associated with bad luck and superstition. But where did this belief originate? Some theories suggest that it is connected to the persecution of the Knights Templar on Friday, October 13, 1307

On that day, King Philip IV of France ordered the arrest of the Templars, a medieval Christian military order, on charges of heresy and other crimes. The Templars were arrested and tortured, and many were eventually executed. 

"Just like the Knights Templar, businesses and employees are facing new challenges and obstacles as they adapt to a new way of working."

The idea of Friday the 13th being a day of bad luck may have originated from the events of that day, as the arrest and persecution of the Templars marked the end of the order and the beginning of its downfall.
Fast forward several centuries and we find ourselves in a world where remote working has become the norm for many people. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses and employees to adapt to a new way of working, with many people now working from home. This has led to a significant increase in the use of technology, particularly in the area of office technology.

The Office Technology industry has seen a surge in demand for products such as laptops, webcams, and other equipment that allow employees to work remotely. Companies have also had to invest in technology such as VPNs and cloud-based software to ensure that their employees can access the information they need while working from home.

In many ways, the events of Friday the 13th, October 1307, and the downfall of the Knights Templar can be seen as a turning point in history. Similarly, the current shift towards remote working and the increased use of office technology can also be seen as a turning point, one that is likely to have a lasting impact on the way we work and do business.

Just like the Knights Templar, businesses and employees are facing new challenges and obstacles as they adapt to a new way of working. However, just like the Templars, we have the technology and the tools to overcome these challenges and emerge stronger on the other side.

So, next time Friday the 13th rolls around, instead of fearing bad luck, let's embrace the changes and challenges that come our way. After all, it's all about adapting and evolving, just like the Office Technology industry and the remote working trend.
