The study investigated the levels of workplace environment in selected MNCs operating in Central Uganda under the dimensions:‭ (‬1‭) ‬workplace arrangement; (‬2‭) ‬attitudinal atmosphere‭; (‬3‭) ‬work conditions and‭ (‬4‭) ‬manager’s/supervisor’s practices.‭ ‬The ex post facto/retrospective-prospective and descriptive strategies were employed.‭ ‬Data were analyzed using summary statistics‭ (‬i.e.‭ ‬mean and rank by construct‭)‬.The findings revealed that managers‭’‬/supervisors‭’ ‬practices were ranked one while work conditions was ranked last from among the‭ ‬4‭ ‬constructs on level of workplace environment.‭ ‬The overall mean illustrated a satisfactory level of workplace environment although this was not the highest level.‭ ‬The null hypothesis of no significant differences in the level of workplace environment among MNCs was rejected.‭ ‬Inferences were made that MNCs in Central Uganda had differing workplace environment and that such environment had impact on the operations of MNCs thus authenticating the Contingency theory by Fiedler‭ (‬1964‭)‬.‭ ‬It was recommended that there was need to elevate the level of workplace environment.
