What to do if you're too hot or too cold at work.

Too Hot? Too Cold? 16 Hacks for Dealing With Unruly Office Temperatures

My relationship with office temperatures can best be described through the following Katy Perry lyrics: "You're hot, then you're cold. You're yes, then you're no. You're in, then you're out. You're up, then you're down ..."

Is the sentiment familiar? More often than not, getting your office to a "perfect" temperature -- one that everyone can agree upon -- can feel like an uphill battle. When Jane is cold, Steve is hot, and then there's Karen feeling perfectly content.

The trouble with the disconnect here? Office temperatures can actually have a significant impact on people's productivity and ability to perform. In fact, a study from Cornell University researchers revealed that employees committed 44% more errors when office temperatures were low than when they were warm.

While it might seem impossible to please everyone, there are steps you can take to create a more comfortable working environment for yourself no matter what you're feeling -- freezing, sweating, or somewhere in between. Here are some tip on staying comfortable in unpredictable office climates.
