4 Environmental Factors That Impact Worker Productivity

Successful individuals strive for perfection in their careers. Trying your best is undoubtedly a value many people hold close to their hearts. But what if your fullest potential isn’t being tapped due to some circumstance that’s completely out of your control? Believe it or not, there are many environmental factors that can influence work performance both for your employees and for yourself. Here are just a few.

  1. Air Quality
    The more polluted the air you breathe gets, the more likely you are to suffer from illnesses related airborne contaminants. Sick workers typically can’t achieve the same levels of productivity as healthy ones. Not only is clean air better for everyone’s health, it’s better for the bottom line as well.
  2. Temperature
    Cornell University conducted a study that found the optimal temperature for worker productivity. The highest levels of productivity are achieved at 71.6 degrees Fahrenheit. If your workplace is significantly hotter or colder than this, consider investing in temporary heating or temporary cooling solutions.
  3. Humidity
    Too much humidity can cause an increase in airborne allergens and germs. This shows that pollutants don’t necessarily need to be present to have poor air quality. If this workspace is temporary, dehumidifier rentals are a convenient way to suck the excess moisture from the air. If the air is too dry, though, it could cause your employees to have dry mouths and throats. When using dehumidifiers, consult the instructions on proper use duration.
  4. Distractions
    Telling someone to focus when they are in a very distracting environment is like telling an angry person to calm down. You’re just going to make it worse. Distractions in the workplace cause far too many accidents every year. Find innovative ways to reduce employee distractions and you will benefit in the long run.

This global economy we are all a part of is fast paced and unforgiving. Whether you are an employer or employee, or somewhere in between, you have the right to decent work conditions. Improving productivity through simple environmental changes could have massive implication on any company’s long-term growth. Keeping up with the competition means taking every advantage you can get.
