summary User orientation is and should be a driver for workplace development. The work environment has been identified to influence employee satisfaction and work performance. As the nature of work is changing, updated research is needed concerning office users’ work environment preferences. In order to develop and provide work environments that meet the preferences of employees, more information about user preferences is required. Additionally, there are implications that user involvement and being able to influence decisions concerning the work environment increases the users’ satisfaction with their work environment. There is also a need for a better understanding on how involving users in the decisions made concerning the work environment affects their satisfaction. This research has a twofold aim. The first aim is to increase the understanding of user preferences about the work environments in the offices. The second aim is to identify how the preferences of the office users are usually being considered in relocation processes of organizations. It is important to understand what kind of impact user involvement has on the office users’ satisfaction.
