Research: Women do better in warmer offices



EMPLOYERS could improve efficiency by increasing the temperature in workplaces, a recent study found that women are more efficient in warmer offices, while men have not shown so strongly that office temperatures affect their productivity at work.

Scientists at the University of Southern California found that women were more successful in verbal and math tasks in warmer offices. In men, performing the same tasks improved at lower temperatures, but in them the relationship between office temperature and efficiency was much less pronounced than in women.



The study authors said that office temperatures would have to rise significantly above current standards to increase productivity in workplaces where employees of both sexes work.

More than 500 students participated in the survey conducted in Berlin.

Three different time limits of testing in mathematics, verbal skills and cognitive functions were conducted within the framework of the research, and success in the test resulted in a financial reward.

The tests were conducted at different office temperatures, from 16.1 to 32.7 degrees Celsius.

Optimum temperature – about 24 degrees

Scientists have found that there is a link between office temperature and success in math and verbal tests, while office temperature has had no effect on cognitive function in both women and men.

Research leader Professor Tom Chang of the University of Southern California said that “within the range of relatively normal temperatures, productivity differences have been observed.”

“It has been known before that women prefer warmer workplaces than men, but so far it has been believed that it is a matter of personal preference,” Chang says.

The study found that women are most productive in offices where temperatures are between 21 and 26 degrees Celsius, while men are more productive in offices where temperatures are below 21 degrees.

“What we've discovered is that it's not just about feeling comfortable or not, but also that your productivity depends on it. Your performance in the spheres that matter – in math and verbal skills and the effort you put in – is affected by temperature. . “

“Employers invest a lot in making their employees comfortable and highly productive,” says Professor Chang.

“Even if you only worry about money and productivity, you might consider raising the temperature in your office buildings,” he adds.

According to this research, the optimal office temperature would be around 24 degrees Celsius.
