As “Game of Thrones” fans would say, winter is coming. The temperatures are beginning to drop and with this climate shift, the vital task of regulating the office workspace temperature begins—which we all know is a notoriously difficult task. Many factors go into what someone will deem as a “comfortable” temperature: gender, clothing, and metabolic rate.
Research suggests that between 69- and 73-degrees Fahrenheit is the recommended air temperature to keep employees productive and comfortable within their working environment. This is not going to solve 100% of the office complaining, but it will help keep the temperature constant throughout the year. When you stabilize the temperature in an office workspace, the body will regulate, and employees will also know how to dress each day to stay productive.
Office temperature may be one of the most difficult office elements to control, but it’s not the only factor that plays into the creation of a productive workplace environment. Humidity, seating, lighting, desk design, noise, and décor all contribute to how comfortable an office space can look and feel.
