In order to solve these problems, many researchers were researched about this case to find another way in how to make employees feel more productive and more concentrate. They have found that by controlling the office temperature can improve employees’ performances while working.
One of the researches by Cornell has stated “When temperatures were low (68 degrees or 20 degrees Celsius) employees made 44% more mistakes than at optimal room temperature (77 degrees or 25 degrees Celsius.”
The reason for a drop in concentration and performance when we are cold is because of the energy that is used by our bodies in trying to make us warmer. The less energy used, the more concentrate you have become.
Another study has claimed that the warmer temperature is best for office productivity. The optimal temperature for working is around 21 – 25 degrees Celsius.
It said that the warmer the temperature in the office make the employees more content, more comfortable and more productive. Warm temperature impacting our emotions that will makes us feel happier and empathy towards other.
