Long-Term Effects of Activity-Based Working
September 2010 | Nicky Mosselman, Anca Gosselink, Marion Beijer
Little is known about the effects of activity-based working in the long term. Even if staff are happy with the concept of activity-based working when it is first introduced, are they still as happy after a few years? Does the concept provide adequate support for activities involving communication or concentration? Does it affect employees' productivity and health? And how sustainable is the concept of activity-based working in any case? The long-term effects were studied at the Facility Services Centre of the Tax Administration (B/CFD) in Utrecht. In general, the employees were and are still very happy with the working environment and the workplace concept.
