This is the Effect Poor Temperature Control in the Office Can Have

The ideal office temperature is an age-old debate.

Some like it cooler and some like it hot. But it’s important that you understand the effect that poor temperature control can actually have on your people and your business.

The comfort of your employees is critical to the functionality of your workplace and therefore, the success of your business.

That’s why it’s so important that you always create an office environment that looks out for the comfort and wellbeing of your staff.

At Niche Projects, we can ensure that your office space is geared for good temperature control, to avoid the issues you might have with poor temp control.

Here’s how poor temperature control will impact your business.

Lower Productivity

If it’s too cold or too hot in your office, the productivity of your workers will be affected.

Roughly one third of all office workers say that they lose time in the day due to a poor temperature balance, whether that’s too hot or too cold.

It’s also likely that many more also experience productivity issues throughout the day, and simply do not realise it.

This lost time can translate into millions of dollars lost for larger organisations, which simply must be avoided at all costs.

Sick Workers

Your employees always deserve to be healthy and safe in the workplace.

That’s why good quality temperature control in the office is critical. Better control means you’ll be able to provide the ideal climate, which is between 21 and 23 degrees Celsius.

If your office is either too cold or too hot, employees can be much more prone to illnesses like colds and the flu.

And when your workers get sick, they’ll miss days of work, and maybe even spread the illness throughout the office.

This will result in a hit to your business, as sick days are simply lost productivity. And all because of poor temperature control!

Unhappy Staff

Did you know that 80% of employees are unhappy with the temperature in their office?

If your people are constantly either too cold or too warm in the office, their workplace satisfaction will definitely suffer.

That can result in more stress, and damaged workplace relationships, worse communication and decreased creativity.

It’s clear that happy staff are critical to a successful business. Don’t underestimate the impact of temperature control in this.
