(Hey, there’s me in front of the conference room from ‘The Office’ background!)
The U.S. version of “The Office” may have debuted close to 20 years ago (it premiered on NBC in 2005!), but its lessons continue to impact the workplace. This is the show that taught us why it’s so important to have fire drills. It also likely inspired thousands of workplace pranks, some of which may have actually been funny.
The show’s continued popularity means that a good chunk of today’s workforce is pretty familiar with it. We may be all about remote life here at Buildremote, but we still smile when we see the Dunder Mifflin sales bullpen.
Evidently, other people feel the same way — so we weren’t really surprised to find “The Office” backgrounds featuring the bullpen, the conference rooms, and even characters floating around on the web.
We’ve collected 12 of our favorite Zoom backgrounds from “The Office” to share with you.
