Does it really matter how hot or cold it is at your workplace? After the findings of this study, you maybe just a bit more concerned.
500 people took a series of tests in rooms with temperatures purposely set to a range of temperatures between 61 and 91 degrees. Participants in the test received monetary prizes based on how well they did on their tests motivating them to do as well as possible.
The tests showed women generally got higher scores and completed more questions when the temperature in the room was higher. Men scored better and completed more of the tests when they worked in lower temperatures.So in short, women work better in warmer temperatures and men work better in colder temperatures.
Now ask yourself: What is your office temperature?
