This study is intended to provide useful information for the design and management of effective workplaces by evaluating existing office environments. Renovations in the office environment have improved the amount of work-surface, function of furniture, amount of storage, function of storage, and style of furniture. The analysis identified that the open floor plan of a work environment, over time, is a source of noise problems and deprives office workers of privacy and personalized space. Respondents replied that meeting spaces are few and small, and they lack privacy and quality. In order to improve the quality and efficiency of work this study proposes that companies should provide ergonomic office environment through in-dept study of work-type and workspace.
