Abstract

We conducted a questionnaire survey to examine difference in intellectual productivity based on office environment preferences. In total, 2,684 workers were surveyed using a series of 20 office photos. Data analysis was performed using correspondence analysis and other methods, and the general findings were · Office design was classified into 3 groups related to impression evaluation words. · Workers were classified into 4 types based on office design preference. Through a better outlining of the preferred characteristics for office design for each type of professional, it is expected that office design suitability for each worker type will be improved.
