System of Evaluating Work Characteristics and Providing Workspace Design Suggestions
Work evaluation, Computer-based, Employee workstyle
A computer-based system and method are provided for assessing extrinsic and intrinsic work characteristics of people, and storing such data for evaluation of user pre-defined groups' Workstyles and using the Workstyles and additional survey data to develop design implications for the workspace in which such groups will work in an office environment. The Workstyles encompass multiple types of Workstyles which describe characteristics of where and how individual employees work, how much control they have over their work, and what kind of work they do. The design implications provide design guidance, which are expressed in relative terms and provide suggested guidance as to the development of the individual workspaces (workstations) for a group but do not dictate the specific design thereof.
