Does Temperature Affect Productivity?

Does Temperature Affect Productivity?

Recent studies have shown that the temperature of an office building can actually cause dramatic increases or decreases in employee productivity.  In fact, research shows that a cold building may actually cause employee productivity to plummet. In a recent question and answer post, Phyllis Korkii recently noted that:

Employees who are cold tend to work less efficiently, according to research by Professor Hedge. He measured computer keystrokes performed by office workers, at their actual workstations, in temperatures ranging from 68 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. “At 85, they’re typing twice as much in a minute as they are at 68,” he said. The colder workers also made a greater percentage of mistakes, he said.Temperatures in most buildings are usually set between 70 and 74 degrees, depending on the time of year, he said. But his studies have shown that a temperature between 72 and 79 is optimal for worker productivity and comfort, assuming a reasonably flexible dress code. (Above 79, some workers may start to wilt.)
