Also, all crooks still speak as if they are from the 50s.

UIN sketches, it's definitely shop workers. And, more specifically, shop workers from 1952, even if the sketch was made last week.

*tingaling*
Ah, good morning, sir, what can I do for you?

Although some are set in offices, from roughly 1975

*knock knock*
You wanted to see me, sir...

There are often profit projections on the wall plummeting south. Also, what ever happened to that odd 'rhubarb, rhubarb high pitched squeaking' on the telephone?

Now why did your post make me think of this sketch?

I'd like to proffer a meta answer - a job with a uniform or dress code. Whether implied or otherwise, uniforms give an instance acknowledgement of hierarchy and therefore signposts the characters and likely scenarios. e.g. sucking up the boss. trying to take over someones job

So while an office is good, as the quality of the suit shows the pecking order, a co-working space with hipsters and macbooks, would need more work in order to set-up the situations.
