It takes time to fit into a large office environment if you are new.

Sometimes office politics, particularly in larger offices can be a little unclear, for instance, some people may enjoy a little power by involving you in their own tasks that are not strictly your responsibility to be involved in. Because they have been with the company for a while, it can sometimes mean that they think they have authority over you, when in fact, they do not.

In these situations office furniture can give you a quick and simple clue as to a person’s hierarchy.

Office chairs in particular are a great indication of this because the whole system of seating can sometimes depend upon the ranking you have in the office culture.

Isn’t it always the case that the new member of staff always gets the wonky office chair that has no arms?  When you have been with the company for a longer time and move through the rankings of the office culture, watch yourself get promoted to a padded swivel office chair. As more new people start you could even find yourself promoted to a luxury office chair with arms and adjustable height!

If your boss is out of the office, a popular office game is to sneak behind people and release the height level of their office chair so they suddenly shoot down to a chin height level with their office desk this is great fun, especially when they are on the phone and need to remain business-like.

The typical office chair in which you will find that most bosses sit will probably be made of leather and be wide enough to seat two people, it will have comfortable arms or closed sides and move backwards to support your back when relaxing.  This is the ultimate in office chairs and most workers aspire to have it
