Spatial solutions for environmental satisfaction, well-being and work engagement in activity-based offices – ActiveWorkSpace
The aim of the ActiveWorkSpace project is to identify key spatial solutions that support the environmental satisfaction, well-being at work and work engagement of employees in activity-based offices.
Materials and techniques
Multidisciplinary research groups
The research groups of the project represent different disciplines. The participants of the consortium of multidisciplinary research groups theorize new scientific data produced from the perspective of occupational health information (the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health), acoustic information (Turku University of Applied Sciences) and spatial planning information (the Department of Architecture, University of Oulu).
The consortium partners have a wide range of expertise to jointly conduct transversal and longitudinal intervention studies in authentic environments. The research is based on discipline-specific and topical top scientific research and laboratory studies.
Results and effectiveness
Through qualitative and quantitative discipline-specific research methods, the consortium partners provide a comprehensive answer to the research question:
How do the spatial solutions of activity-based offices contribute to environmental satisfaction, well-being and work engagement?
