The first workplace appeared in the 15th century, created by monks in the form of a “scriptorium” – a workshop for copying manuscripts used by illuminators and scribes. In 1726, special separate buildings known as offices were opened. Before that, business owners conducted clerical work right in their homes.
The 20th century saw the introduction of more modern offices into our lives. Now there are a huge number of varieties, such as business centers, co-working spaces, and online offices. In addition, technology like laptops, tablets, and phones have blurred the lines between home and work, as some professions allow you to work remotely from any corner of the world.
Improve Your Office Day is often requested by employers to discover the wishes of their employees and to bring the space into proper shape. This not only shows their concern for personnel but also benefits the company as a lot depends on the working mood, and ultimately productivity.
