Abstract

The main objective of this research is to study the effect of different office layout on employees' performance. This research involved the 2 specific objectives which are to study the effects of traditional office layout and cubicle office layout on employee's performance. This study has been done through survey by using interview questions. Six participants from Faculty Social Sciences (FSS), Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB), and Faculty of Cognitive Sciences and Human Development (FCSHD) were selected using purposive sampling. Three participants were selected from traditional office layout and another three participants were selected from cubicle office layout. The finding of this research shows that there are positive effects of different office layout on employees' performance. Positive effects of traditional office layout on employees' performance are big amount of space which allowed re-arrangement between furniture, full height wall and close door which will increase visual privacy. On the other hand, close door became the negative effect on employees' performance because it reduces the interaction between colleagues and support staff. Furthermore, positive effects of cubicle office layout on employees' performance are it increases the interaction between colleagues and staff. On the other hand, the negative effect of cubicle office layout on employees' performance are no visual privacy and easy accessible by people walk by.
