Cubicle – A workstation in an open plan office, with little or no privacy, generally for low-status office workers

Network – The system which connects computers together within an organization

Office Equipment and Surroundings Live Example

Live Example:

A good office environment should be light and airy, workstations should be kept tidy and clean, ideally, desks should be cleared every evening before people go home, and filing cabinets should be locked. Reception areas should be attractive and inviting, with comfortable seating and up to date magazines for visitors to read while they are waiting to be attended to. The photocopier and shredder should be conveniently located for all users – near the water cooler is often a good choice of location. Key locations such as the boardroom and conference room should be kept in a good state of readiness so that they can be used at short notice.
Office Equipment and Surroundings Live Conversation Example

Live Conversation Example:

Bob: I've just been offered the corner office!

Mary: Oh, I heard some of the guys gossiping about that by the water cooler. That shows that you are going places! That office has such a beautiful oak desk and filing cabinets, and the most comfortable executive chair in the company!

Bob: I really enjoy having a good workspace. I think our cubicles could do with some improvement, they are pretty shabby.

Mary: Well, I have been asked to set up the boardroom for a meeting, maybe you could suggest it, now that you are such a big shot!

Bob: It's just a new office Mary, I'm still going to be hanging out by the photocopier and the shredder!

Keeping your personal workspace tidy and efficient shows that you have an organized mind. It also makes it easier to work. What can you do to improve your working space?
