Using a longitudinal field survey, we collect data on how implementing an activity-based work environment impacts perceived productivity, job satisfaction, and job strain across time [1]. The sample consisted of 100 employees in a government organization implementing an activity-based working environment with each employee surveyed on three time-points—Time 1–Time 3. The sample included all employees affected by the implementation. At each time-point, the response rate was 87%, 75%, and 69%, respectively, resulting in a total of 231 measurements. The sample was approximately 75% female at each time-point. Data collection took place a couple of months before the activity-based environment was implemented, again a couple of months after implementation, and finally, about six months later. The final survey took place about a year after the first survey. All data were collected using an online survey.
