Global Business Parks is the premier directory of Business Parks (of all descriptions including Industrial Parks, High-tech Parks, Science Parks, etc.) and their tenant enterprises worldwide.


Dr. James Nysather is CEO & Founder of Global Business Parks (GBP).  His doctoral dissertation, entitled The Impact of Physical Workplace Design on Employee Outcomes: The Case of Silicon Valley Business Parks, is aimed to help business park owners and managers determine which design factors of their parks influence the job satisfaction, transfer intention, and productivity of their tenant's employees.  Business park owners benefit from this customized survey by learning what they can do to attract and attain the best occupiers.  

If you would like to learn more about this academically sound survey and how it can increase leasing rates and create a more satisfying environment for your business park's tenants, please contact Dr. Nysather directly for a free evaluation.  Download a derivative of the work which was done for one of the participating business parks on our Service Offerings page.
