Other Titles

Abstract

This study explores the relationship between the physical factors of a workplace and employees' 'sense of belonging'. To do so, it examined the construct validity of a workplace questionnaire designed by the International Workplace Studies Program (IWSP) at Cornell University, as an instrument to predict employees' 'sense of belonging'. The sample size and research site for this study are 267 employees working at the corporate campus of a global information technology firm; Wipro Technologies, who volunteered to participate in this study. Factor analysis of the survey items identified 5 primary workplace physical factors that underlay the IWSP questionnaire. Correlations among employees' self-reported sense of belonging and the workplace physical factors confirmed that employees' sense of belonging has a statistically significant association with the physical factors of the workplace. A statistically significant model comprising of four workplace physical factors was developed to predict employees' 'sense of belonging'.
