Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS) is a personality trait that has been increasingly discussed recently. The pandemic of recent years has given science opportunities to study people in unique situations. This study has taken the opportunity to examine how people who are high on the SPS scale are affected by the transition to return to office work after a long period of mandatory telework. The hypotheses in the study were that people with a high level of SPS would find the transition to office work more difficult. To test the hypotheses, a survey with 332 respondents was conducted. The answers were analyzed to distinguish differences between people with different degrees of SPS in perceived well-being, perceived work environment and efficiency. The results confirm both hypotheses in the study and it appears that the measure of SPS is important for how people experience the transition to office work.
