History of the National Productive Business Civility Day. 

The industrial revolution began in Britain in the mid-1700s. The steam engine was created during the revolution, leading to increased production by the then companies.  As a result, job seekers increased as the farmhands and people from rural areas migrated to the cities searching for work in mines and industries.  Towards 1800, there were more changes as the cotton gin was invented. This machine was considered sophisticated as it could remove cotton seeds, consequently increasing production. The US emerged as the leader in cotton production with this new technology then.  The invention of the cotton gin opened  doors toward automation


However, despite this progress that was considered bold, productivity was negatively affected by the first world war in 1914.  Due to the war, there was a labor shortage, and production ceased.  Industrial growth was only notable again after the second world war in 1945. In the US, productivity increased as the demand for war materials increased and the labor force increased with women entering the workforce. In the 1990s,  there was a major change as companies adopted the internet and digital productivity. Remarkable technology, such as Artificial Intelligence, led to increased productivity, and companies like Google played significant roles in digital technology. In 2014,  Amazon Echo joined the industry and brought access to information by introducing smart devices.  Today, thousands of companies offer technological and digital assistance not only in companies but even in homes.
