Workspace environment management: recent challenges and future trends for organizational psychology

2021. Vol. 11. No. 4. P. 190–202 [issue contents]
Workspace is continuously changing from traditional environment to the office culture presupposing spatial arrangements for various nooks and crevices for concentration, relaxation, breaks, games, or team gatherings. Such changes are aimed at increasing employees’ well-being and psychological safety. The way employees perceive working environment lead to effective or ineffective adaptation to job requirements and work efficiency. This process may be mediated by cultural and individual differences that organizational and business psychologists account for in dealing with organizational change. An adjustment to further research directions and study methodologies with a proper interdisciplinary holistic approach may unlock previously unseen correlations and phenomena with the theoretical and practical design benefits, affecting not only the sphere of the workplace physical environments but many other areas of human inhabitation and well-being. Surrounding environment, physical body and personal qualities are thoroughly intertwined and cannot be considered totally independent from each other, as they all equally contribute to spatial and experiential apprehension. Accounting for such factors may help organizational psychologists improve the environment and everyday settings, enhance the potential of individuals actively cope with and shape environments.
