According to Oxford Advance Learner Dictionary, “Are office is a room, set of rooms or building where people work usually sitting at desk”.

Above all, office is designed to stimulate environments that encourage creativity. Therefore, one cannot define an office without the knowledge of it’s environment. Are office environment is a business community where socio-economic or business activities are performed with a view to achieve organizational goals.  It should be known that every business system lies within are environment in enhancing work motivation and job satisfaction is necessary in every organization.  Consequently management should look into work motivation and conducive environment as antidote for enhancing productively and influences the amount of work interest and happiness of workers.
