Once, long ago, everyone 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 the majority of people in the world don’t ice skate and work in offices.

The 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 globalization.

The office is now an indispensable part of any business organization. Modern offices are organized on scientific principles and their management and administration are in the hands of techno-savvy Managers which has paved way for the sustenance of business amidst cut-throat competition.

An Office performs tasks like the framing of business policies, processing, and communication of information, record keeping, handling mails, execution of orders and managing receipts and payments. The office can be described as any place where information converges on paper, which is documented, preserved and used for both current and future operations of the business.

Hence, Office Management is very important for the successful functioning of the business.
