The advancement of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence contribute to the prevailing development of smart office, which is capable of understanding employees’ context and adapting to their demands. The smart office brings numerous opportunities for delivering prevention and control measures of health issues associated with office work (e.g., musculoskeletal disorders and computer vision syndrome). Even though there exist multiple studies across different disciplines, there still lacks a holistic survey on the smart office for employee health promotion. Hence, this paper focuses on three contributions: (1) clarifying the fundamentals of smart office, (2) reviewing the key aspects of this theme based on 60 studies selected from a systematic survey process, and (3) identifying the challenges and future research opportunities. We hope this study can bring an interdisciplinary and collaborative perspective for employee health promotion and encourage more researches in this emerging and promising field.
