Abstract: The combination of office design and work design effects has largely been neglected up to now. In a field study with 257 clerical workers the effects of work and office design was explored. Within an action-theoretical framework multivariate relationships between perceived properties of the office environment and work tasks on the one hand and related attitudes on the other hand are examined. Results show that the variance range in job satisfaction, organisational commitment, privacy, crowding, perceived control, and social climate can be explained through ratings of perceived properties of work and office design by 10 to 70 percent. Not all attitudes are influenced by the same attributes of work and office design. The beta weights show that generally the influences of office design are of greater importance than work design variables. Our research complements available findings on work and workplace design by investigating complex effects of work design and office concepts on employees.
