Back office

A back office is a part of most corporations where tasks dedicated to running the company itself take place. Examples of back-office tasks include IT departments that keep the phones and computers running, accounting and human resources.

The term contrasts with the front office, where the primary tasks are carried out. For instance, in a software company development and sales would be considered front-office roles.
