內容簡介

人生而自由,為何自困於辦公室隔間裡? 

◎ 2014紐約時報年度百大好書 
◎ 2014亞馬遜歷史類年度選書 
◎ 2014野獸日報最佳非小說類選書 
◎ 2014《公司》商業雜誌評為年度最耐人尋味的書籍 
◎ 亞馬遜4顆星好評 

每天八小時以上,一週至少五天,今日我們大部分時間都生活在辦公室裡。辦公室的座位與裝潢,除了工作上的使用,也象徵辦公室中的權力關係。你喜歡靠窗的位置嗎?位於角落的隔間是否給人高高在上的感覺?這些「眉眉角角」其實有著百年的演變史。 

你能想像一百年前在辦公室工作是何等榮耀!相較於工廠,辦公室曾是充滿希望的地方,象徵向上流動的各種可能性。上班族有更高的社會地位,而且他們在當時最具代表性的摩天大樓中工作。但是,為何今日在辦公室中的你我很少會這麼想? 

本書從十九世紀跨越到二十一世紀,透過摩天大樓興起、泰勒管理概念、女性進入職場以及大眾流行文化等多面向觀察一部辦公室的社會史,剖析其中白領上班族的生存之道與自我認同。 

你將會發現辦公室和你想的不一樣: 
●FB的開放性辦公室其實一百年前就有了!但卻是為了方便監控員工而設計! 
●高樓大廈與空調,讓百年前上班族逃離工廠地獄!但為何今日的你上班卻覺得像在坐牢? 
●女性出現在辦公室裡,竟讓職場充滿誘惑與危機?打字員、速記員、祕書從此成為女性員工的專屬。 
●因為佛洛伊德心理學,大老闆們真的注意起員工的心理需求了嗎?還是僅為了管理和監控! 
●空間變革又是為了誰?是人性化需求,還是為了讓你在辦公裡待更久? 

辦公空間的更迭,有過管理考量,也有來自外部環境的挑戰,今日我們看到兩種趨勢,一種是Google、臉書、蘋果等人性化的開放空間,而其中許多設計在過去百年間明顯有跡可尋。另一種則是在家工作取代在辦公室上班,看似與工業革命之前相去不遠,但卻暗示著一種變化:上班族曾被視為被動的從眾主義者、他們不具開創性,只能遵循辦公室政治移動,但今日他們拋棄象徵地位的辦公桌,尋找自由與解放,或許將可能成為百年來辦公室歷史的終點。結果如何,就讓我們拭目以待。

You mean this place we go to five days a week has a "history"? "Cubed" reveals the unexplored yet surprising story of the places where most of the world's work--our work--gets done. From "Bartleby the Scrivener" to "The Office," from the steno pool to the open-plan cubicle farm, "Cubed" is a fascinating, often funny, and sometimes disturbing anatomy of the white-collar world and how it came to be the way it is--and what it might become. In the mid-nineteenth century clerks worked in small, dank spaces called "counting-houses." These were all-male enclaves, where work was just paperwork. Most Americans considered clerks to be questionable dandies, who didn't do "real work." But the joke was on them: as the great historical shifts from agricultural to industrial economies took place, and then from industrial to information economies, the organization of the workplace evolved along with them--and the clerks took over. Offices became rationalized, designed for both greater efficiency in the accomplishments of clerical work and the enhancement of worker productivity. Women entered the office by the millions, and revolutionized the social world from within. Skyscrapers filled with office space came to tower over cities everywhere. "Cubed "opens our eyes to what is a truly "secret history" of changes so obvious and ubiquitous that we've hardly noticed them. From the wood-paneled executive suite to the advent of the cubicles where 60% of Americans now work (and 93% of them dislike it) to a not-too-distant future where we might work anywhere at any time (and perhaps "all" the time), "Cubed" excavates from popular books, movies, comic strips ("Dilbert!"), and a vast amount of management literature and business history, the reasons why our workplaces are the way they are--and how they might be better.
