In order to determine how physical elements in the working environment and new workplace practice affect employee satisfaction, change monitoring techniques are applied throughout a two year longitudinal study. Additionally, the learning culture is analyzed in response to the new working environment, specifically regarding how workplace changes influence the perceived effect of the working environment on the learning culture.
