The study explores and finds the perceptions of employees that work in an open office cubicle environment. The study also investigates to see if there are suggestions or ideas that can come from employees that work in open office cubicles on how to improve worker productivity and morale. The literature focused on three areas: Physical Environment, Health and Well-Being, and Privacy. There were several themes noted from the data from the participants. The themes evolved around enhanced privacy, working technology, snacks and coffee, sit-stand desks, and collaboration areas. These themes were noted to be important for open office settings from the perceptions of these employee participants. These ideas generated from the study are working to be implemented into the organization.
