I am trying to identify this fernlike plant as per photo attached. No one in office where I saw it knows what is or where it came from.

Welcome!

Its a ZZ Plant. They are popular in offices because they thrive on neglect.

If you try to take good care of ZZ's, they reward you by dropping dead. Smiling
