Bad Weather and Office Productivity Accuconference

April showers may eventually bring May flowers, but what does it mean for the workplace?

A survey of 6000 people conducted by Careerbuilder.com said:

10% said they were less productive on gloomy days
21% said rain was the largest contributor
32% said they tend to be happier on sunny days
21% said they have called in sick because of not wanting to travel to work in bad weather.

The article also suggests the following techniques to improve morale:

  1. Order-in a hot lunch
  2. Show a DVD in the lunch room
  3. Play some Team-building games
  4. Provide scooters to get around the office

We’d also suggest:

  1.  
    • Hire a masseuse
    • Order Gourmet Coffee
    • Set-up inter-office betting competitions.
    • Write a blog about being productive on rainy days
