So after yet another day freezing my butt off waiting for my office heating system to be fixed, I came across this timely article published online today by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
The article discusses how the optimum office temperature is around 71 degrees. Low temperatures negatively affect productivity, with cold workers making more typing errors while simultaneously having a lower typing output. Yeah...from my experiences this week that's a no brainer...you try typing when your fingers are frozen stiff from the cold!
*Disclaimer...despite my whining about the cold the last two days I still reserve the right to bitch about my office being too hot in the summer : )
