University employees job content and experiences of new working environments

Multi-space offices have been developed to achieve space efficiency as well as to encourage collaboration. Research on the functioning of multi-space offices in universities is scarce. The aim of this survey study was to compare experiences of the university staff (N = 118) on the functionality of multi-space offices for four different types of university work. Additionally perceived effects of workplace change were studied. The data was analyzed using correlations, Kruskall Wallis-, Mann Whitney-U and χ² -tests as well as logistic regression models. Results showed that the university staff was mostly satisfied with their work environment. The respondents found multi-space offices appropriate for carrying out work tasks.
