Offices nowadays are very much concerned about their interiors, by interiors we mean the furniture, structure and design of the office. Owners often make the workplaces very beautiful and relaxing so that the employees can perform well. Though some other factors should also be taken into account like temperature. What if the temperature of the office is not moderate? The employees will not be willing to work no matter how attractive the workplace is. Managing the interior temperature of the offices is equally important and should be major concerns of the owners. A temperature between 20 – 20-degree centigrade is considered to be ideal for office conditions. Industrial ventilation systems from CAE are also helpful in maintaining the temperature inside the workplaces.
Here are some points that will help you to understand the importance of managing ideal office temperature.
- Employee productivity:
The employee productivity and performance is directly proportional to the temperature of the office. It has been seen that when the interior temperature is not moderate the employees feel reluctant to work. Their tendency to work reduces and often they do not feel active. Not having moderate temperature weaken the skills and qualities of the employees.
In summers, without having AC in your office and you are still willing to work, this is out of the question. Employee morale and motivation goes down as they feel exhausted. Maintaining moderate temperature is important whether it is winters or summers. You don’t want your employees to feel lazy or exhausted.
- Employees appearance:
An employee’s appearance is also a major factor that describes how much he is affected by the temperature. The weight or BMI of an employee is a contributing factor in their ability to get affected by the temperature. People who weigh more are likely to feel warm more quickly. Similarly, the age of the employee also plays a major role, senior employees or old age people are likely to feel cold as compared to young people.
With temperature, the humidity levels of the workplace should also be monitored. Too low or too high humidity levels can affect how employees perceive temperature. Low humidity levels make the air feel cool and it also leads to skin and nasal diseases. Whereas, high humidity levels can make the employees sweaty and dehydrated which in turn affect the work productivity.
The health of the employees is also influenced by the interior temperature of the workplaces. Dehydration, dryness of throat and nasal passages, cold, flu, fever and chills all are caused as a result of high and low temperatures. In order to keep the employees in their working condition and to avail their satisfaction workplaces must be properly temperature to avoid any health issues.
If the offices are not moderately temperature then employees often face strokes when there is a heat wave outside.
Employees should be given a good working environment so that they can perform at their optimal and provide results. Besides, a little expense on your workplace will only increase its value.
