Work organization deals with the way work is organized and managed in an organisation. Work organization involves scheduling the working hours, deciding the pace of the work, improving the relationships between the worker and coworkers and the supervisors ect.

Work organization should be thought of as an agreement between a number of actors who work towards a common goal.

“a given unit of appropriation such as a firm or a department may incorporate multiple work organizations (shifts, projects, etc.), whereas a given work organization may involve actors from separate companies.” (Schmidt, 2002: 25)
