It's kind of a tradition at offices for coworkers to get into passive-aggressive battles over the THERMOSTAT.
Someone actually tried to figure out just how much productivity businesses are losing because of issues with the office temperature . . . and it's actually a LOT.
A survey found that only 24% of people say they're always happy with the temperature in their office.
29% of people say they spend 10 to 30 minutes each day uncomfortable . . . and 6% spend more than a half hour uncomfortable.
And that works out to at least 1% of all work hours wasted every day because of the temperature in the office.
In an office with 100 people, that works out to eight total hours wasted in a day . . . or the equivalent of someone just not showing up to work. (PR Newswire)
