Adam Starr


Businesses are interested in creating a productive work environment, not a snuggly nap room or a frozen icebox.

If you are cold, bring a coat. If you are still cold then bring a personal space heater. If you are hot, dress in layers. If you are still hot then bring a fan. It’s easy!

Not everybody is going to agree on the perfect temperature. Instead of complaining about the mercury, take steps to address your personal comfort so you can concentrate on work.
