Relationship between individual workers' attributes and their preferences of environment settings for different activities in the office: Investigation of supporting environment for diverse intellectual activities

    研究成果: Article

    抄録

    There has been an increasing interest in office space planning in which workers can choose their work environment by themselves, depending on the diverse workstyles. Realizing the need to clarify the influence of individual worker's attributes on how they select work environment according to each activity in the office, a survey was conducted on office workers. From the findings, it was revealed that there are different tendencies in work environment preference according to attributes such as age, gender, smoking preference, and extroversion. On the other hand, it was suggested that the workspaces for different activities can be classified by combining two viewpoints, "the environmental openness (open/closed)" and "the remoteness between workers (near/far)", indicating the possibility that environment settings by a few variations can satisfy detailed preferences of environment settings comprehensively.
