Study links warm offices to fewer typing errors and higher productivity
Jul 16 2010

Via HBR and Cornell (ever heard of it) Chilly Offices Limit Productivity:

Raising the temperature of an insurance company’s offices from 68 degrees to 77 degrees Fahrenheit (20 to 25 C) reduced typing errors by 44% and boosted typing output by 150%, according to a monthlong study by Alan Hedge of Cornell. The higher, more comfortable temperature resulted in a savings for the employer of about $2 per worker per hour, Hedge says.
