UCSF School of Medicine [SoM] Workplace Research Project

Apr 06, 2015

UCSF School of Medicine [SoM] commissioned a workplace research project to assess a range of indicators of productivity, satisfaction, and well-being prior to and following a move into the new Mission Bay Block 25-A Academic (Office) Building (Mission Hall). The focus of this study is an evidence-based design approach to understanding the best ways to support the UCSF faculty, staff, and students through an Activity-Based Work [ABW] environment. The team completed IRB review, developed a pre- and post-occupancy workplace research protocol, and are in the process of concluding the post-occupancy research. Results will contribute to the future development of workplaces on the UCSF campus and ultimately, through a longitudinal study, contribute to the broader challenges faced by universities that are examining the various ways to accommodate workplaces that optimize new ways of working and support academic needs.
