Project Abstract

Little previous research has looked at the effect of clutter in a work environment, specifically on an employee’s work or occupational outcomes. However, work space is central to the work being produced, one would assume. We wanted to assess the occupational outcomes and analyze how the amount clutter and the seniority or level of one’s job impacts an employee’s job performance and job satisfaction; two themes central to one’s experience at work. This research found a significant relationship between job performance and the amount of clutter in an office space, as hypothesized.
