Are you that sneaky person at work who changes the thermostat to YOUR ideal temperature? According to a new survey, almost 1 in 5 people have done it during the summer.
19% of us have secretly changed the temperature at work . . . 13% to make it cooler, and 6% to make it warmer.
And it doesn’t always go smoothly. 15% of people said they’ve gotten into an ARGUMENT with a coworker over the temperature in their office.
Women are more likely to be unhappy with the temperature at work. 55% of women don’t like their office’s temperature . . . 36% say it’s normally too cold, versus 19% who say it’s too hot.
It’s a more even split for men. 18% say they’re usually cold, and 17% say they’re hot. So that’s 35% total.
Overall, 46% of us aren’t happy with the temperature in our office. And for some of us, it can affect our ability to concentrate.
67% of people say they’re less productive when it’s too warm, compared to 51% when it’s too cold.
