The world of work today is fundamentally different to what it was during the First Industrial Revolution, when the concept of a dedicated working environment (workplace) was first introduced. The business environment is constantly changing, which has a direct impact on the evolution of the workplace. Office administration and management discusses essential aspects of the administration and management of the workplace environment in the era of the Fourth Industrial
Revolution. Office administration and management offers aspiring modern-day office professionals an opportunity to equip themselves with key administrative skills, and further exposes them to office etiquette and efficient office management techniques.
