If you’ve been working from home during the pandemic, you may have forgotten about the oldest office debate of all time: the temperature.
We’ve all been there — wearing a winter jacket in the summer due to aggressive air conditioning, and losing layers in the winter due to overheating.
But what if there was a perfect temperature for productivity?
According to WSJ, there might be. The International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health conducted a review of scientific literature detailing temperature and work performance.
- The study found the optimal range for cognitive and work performance to be 71.6°F to 75.2°F (22°C to 24°C).
If that range feels right to you, you’re welcome for the help with winning your next office thermostat dispute.
If it doesn’t — pretend you never saw this.
