Enjoy the sun while you work
Here in the UK we are renowned for our love of discussing the weather and what with it being so unpredictable year to year, who could blame us? We are currently in the midst of a sustained period of glorious heat and sunshine, however the nice weather outside is not necessarily ideal for the majority of us who have not managed to book time off work to coincide with this illusive British summer.
In fact quite the opposite is true and the sun can can reduce not only our motivation but also our levels of comfort and welfare in the workplace. We have all worked for an employers who is inexplicably unable to judge the temperature of a room (so to speak) and employ heating / air conditioning accordingly. During these illusive summer months, many of us will spend our work day either sweltering in an oven-like office or shivering and gazing longing out at the sun because of an over-zealous colleague being left in charge of the air conditioning.
Conditions at work have a huge effect on not only how happy we are but also on our productivity and output levels. Studies in workplace environments agree that there is a specific temperature range where people are at their most productive and that relatively small fluctuations either side of this can have drastic effects.
Bearing this in mind, the benefits of effectively monitoring the working environment for factors such as temperature and humidity should be clear. If you can ensure that your workers are given the best possible work environment then you will likewise ensure that you are getting the best possible output from your workers. Your employees are happy, you’re happy and your customers are happy, it all adds up to a great decision for any business.
