I can really relate to this article because I am a nurse that works in a hospital and it is always freezing. The first couple of hours are ok because I am running around passing out medications and attending to patients, but when I set down to do the computer part of my job I began to freeze and put on my extra coat that I bring to work for backup. Lighting is also very important I tend to get sleepy if the lights are too dull. Pretty views put me too sleep, so maybe not a good idea for me to have at work.
- Giving employees some self-regulatory ability to set the thermostat can promote a better work culture, greater employee satisfaction and more stuff getting done.
- The same goes for light, as not every person desires the same type, or intensity of light.
- Implementing these two tactics could yield from a 3 to a ten-plus increase in overall production from happier workers.
