Workplace loneliness leads to errors and poor performance. Health is one of the sectors with the most severe consequences. Workplace arrangements where doctors spend most of their time need to be balanced between patient-doctor privacy and the doctor's feeling of loneliness. However, previous studies have been discussed at the psychological level. The aim of this study is to examine the effect of workplace order as a physical and concrete variable on loneliness in business life. The conceptual workplace layout was developed as an operational scale, and validity and reliability analyses were conducted. As the research universe, doctors working in Van Province, who spent most of their time in a working environment and heavy patient traffic, were selected. As a result, it has been determined that the scale of workplace design developed is a valid and reliable scale that can be used in organizational behavior research, and workplace privacy dimension (workplace allocation) affects loneliness at work.

Key words: Workspace Design, Loneliness at Work, Scale Development
