The physical workspace is one that we can see, touch and smell (Morgan, 2018). From the floor layout to the furniture that fills the space, it all makes up the physical workspace where employees come to work. Physical workspaces can also include a cafeteria, gym, arcade area, etc. Prior studies have shown that small, yet meaningful modifications can be made to achieve an optimal workspace (Heitzman, 2018). The purpose of this study is to collect data from employees who conduct work in different office layouts to see how their physical workspace affects their overall happiness and their intent of staying with the company in the future. Increasingly, the workspace can be outside of the physical office in remote locations. This study will determine if the physical workspace; including individuals working in a remote, hybrid, or in person setting; effects employee happiness and turnover rate. This research will be beneficial because many companies are looking to try and reinvent their workspace and encourage their employees to come work in the office following large scale moves to remote and hybrid work.
