This project provides an analysis and evaluation of the impact a change in the working environment has on employee engagement of government employees in the States of Guernsey. Methods of analysis included looking for trends and patterns and displaying them using pie charts and. Results of data analysed show that there are three key findings, the first finding being that employees perception of their engagement levels had been positively impacted with the workspace changes. The second key finding acknowledged that the change in the employee’s perceptions of their productivity levels of before and after the workspace changes has increased. The final key finding from the interview, was that the States of Guernsey wanted to reach a 0.6 desk to person as a part of a cost reduction strategy. This report found that the impact that the workspace changes have had on the employees, was a positive impact that further underpins their need for workspace changes across the whole of applicable departments within the States of Guernsey to further their cost reduction strategy. Two recommendations discussed included: - Apply the results of this study to each group of employees that goes through the workshop changes in the future -.Conduct the same questionnaire in December 2016, 9 months after the workspace changes took. The report also investigated the fact that the analysis conducted had limitations. Some of the limitations included: - Response fatigue, survey fatigue and Response Bias - Limited in the scope of sample size with 19 respondents out of 100 - Limited time to allow the questionnaire to be embedded - struggle to see changes - Qualitative data was not collected in 2014 prior to the workspace changes - This study replicated a part of the States of Guernsey's 2014 employee engagement survey, however, there was a different sample size between the studies. In the 2014 survey there were approximately 90 respondents compared to this study, which had 19 respondents. Therefore, the relationship between the two sets of results was not strong
