When asked how important the office design and environment was to their job satisfaction, the 5,600 employees surveyed in this Kinnarps study answered 5 on a 6 scale. Though the survey results did not include any statistical significance data and was comprised of only Kinnarps customers, the findings are still worth noting. Respondents across six industries (individual reports are available) also answered questions about, among other things:

 

How they spent their day:

   - 34% writing

   - 29% of the time in meetings

   - 16% planning

   - 12% on the phone

   - 10% other

 

Where they preferred to work:

  - Three highest answers were personal workstation, concentration workstation, and small meeting room

   - In agile environments, preference for the personal workstation went from 58% to 18%

 

Preference for meeting room size:

   - Those wanting small meeting rooms outnumbered those wanting large ones by 3:1
