How To Thrive In Your Office Environment!
Unsuitable office temperatures are potentially costing the UK economy £13bn each year in lost productivity.* Research shows that when temperatures rise too high, or drop too low, up to eight working hours can be lost each day in an office of 100 people. This can also impact on the wellbeing of colleagues, resulting in further loss of hours through sickness.*
This begs the question: how much is your office temperature costing you? Inside this issue of Insider, we take a look at how you can create a comfortable and productive office environment.
