Weather may influence productivity in the workplace

by The 100 Companies

While inclement winter weather may still lie ahead, research shows that lousy weather is actually good for business; a decrease in sunny skies directly correlates to workforce productivity.

The reason? Rainy days don’t distract employees the way sunny days do.

Employees are tempted by the possibilities of sunshine – a bike ride, a day at the beach – compared to downpour days when they may as well be inside working. In fact, employees work more efficiently with inclement weather.

What’s a manager to do? While we cannot predict the weather, consider clerical work under gray skies and more flexibility under blue skies.
