The No. 1 thing people complain about at work: the temperature. Researchers at Cornell University have found that warmer offices can improve productivity.
The study found that cooler temperatures often cause employees to make more mistakes and could increase labor costs by 10%.
One team under observation started with the thermostat at 68 degrees, then researchers raised it to 77 degrees. The change reduced typing errors by 44%, and its output increased by 150%.
