This paper summarizes a study hypothesizing that the physical setting of a workplace is a motivating force because it reflects status within an agency, which can affect employees’ work-related attitudes, including employee job satisfaction and perceived performance. Results indicated that satisfaction with status symbols in the workplace influenced job satisfaction and perceived performance, even after controlling for traditional motivational variables such as satisfaction with pay and supervisory support.
