Office Settings

Nowadays, we know that we are strongly influenced by the offices in which we work. However, there have been few detailed and scientifically verified findings relating to the complex interdependencies to date:

  • To what extent do different office environments affect motivation, performance and well-being?
  • What differences arise depending on different duty and activity profiles?
  • How does the time we spend in the office influence our feelings?
  • How well can we perform our duties in the office, at home or on the move?

By taking part in our survey lasting approx. 10-15 minutes, you will help us research the positive and negative effects of different office settings and enable us to use the results to make a contribute to the positive shaping of our working and living environments.


To thank you for taking part, we would be delighted to provide you with a summary of the study results should you wish.
