The important components of the successful business are the productivity of their employees. Employees who have a competent work ethics usually are the productive ones. However, there are still factors that affect the behavior and attitude of employees and one of these is the weather. Studies have found that weather affects the employee’s productivity.
Weather is one of the consideration when going out or scheduling the things that you must do. But as an employee, you cannot consider the weather when going to work unless the government releases an announcement of the suspension. Even though you don’t have a choice, still weather affects your efficiency at work.
Workers are more efficient on their tasks during rainy days than on good weather days, because they don’t spend time thinking or planning about their outdoor activities and would be more focus on finishing their task within the day.
On the other hand, some employees are disinterested to do their job or they would simply finish their tasks because they worry more about how they will be able to get home dry and would have the urge to go home early and sleep.
Employees are efficient during sunny days because the bright of the sun keeps the brains alert, awake and focused. It also creates a good mood for the employees who love the heat. However, the sunny weather is the perfect time to go out and do some personal errands. Therefore, employees want to finish their task early so that they can still do their personal errand during sunrise.
Brains tend to relax and laze when there’s no sunlight and the office lights are dim. It would make employees feel tired which would cause destruction to their task.
Some employees are also efficient at work during cloudy weather because it doesn’t provide many distractions while working. They won’t be curious about what’s happening outside and would be more focused on doing their tasks.
