From Latin officīna, a office is the local destined to some job . It can have different forms of organization and distribution of space according to the number of workers and their function.
There are offices or offices occupied by a single worker (usually a manager, manager or even the owner of the company ). Other offices are shared by many people ; If it is a large space, each worker will have their own space. However, if the office is small, several workers are likely to share large tables.
Each office space organization has its advantages and disadvantages. When each worker has their own space, comfort is improved (and, therefore, motivation and productivity) and conversations between workers are reduced, which avoids the loss of weather . On the negative side, when the worker is isolated, it is likely that it will be dispersed more easily and that instead of working, he will devote himself to surfing the Internet or other idle activities.
In offices where there is less space and distance between employees, there is usually a more bustling climate and less concentration. However, managers will be able to control workers more easily without the need for commuting.
exist office buildings where, instead of housing departments, all available structures are used for the installation of offices. These buildings are very common in the commercial and administrative centers of the big cities.
