Once, long ago, every one in the world ice skated. In fact, everyone worked on the ice. Then, someone came up with the idea of working off the ice. A new word was then formed by combining the words off and ice. That is where the word office comes from. This is why majority of people in the world don't ice skate and work in offices.

Office is described as the nerve centre of the entire organisation. The present day office activities have expanded to a wider extent to keep pace with rapid globalisation.

Office is now indispensable part of any business organisation. Modern offices are organised on scientific principles and their management and administration are in the hands of techno savvy Managers which has paved way for the sustenance of a business amidst cut throat competition.
