Hot, Hot, Hot....

In the UK, we have enjoyed the hottest early May Bank Holiday Monday ever recorded according to the Met Office.  Long may the sunny weather continue over the summer months!

What adjustments does your organisation make , to ensure employees are comfortable in the workplace during the summer months?

I came across a useful article in Reward written by Kimberley Dondo, with five things employers need to know about hot weather and the workplace. 

Here is the link to the full article :

One of the tips was to consider a relaxed summer dress code and how this can have a positive effect on staff.

Is this something that your organisation do?  If so, it would be great to hear from you as to what the criteria and standards are for this.

Thanks

Karen

  • Hi Karen,

    This is something we have been discussing recently as we don't have air-con in the Support Services office, and since we have huge windows we're in a bit of a sun trap! 

    One of our Directors has agreed for a relaxed dress code on hot days, with the provision of if we have client meetings we either bring a change of clothes or otherwise come appropriately dressed. 

    We have also discussed the option of allowing home working on exceptionally hot days - something I'm sure a lot of Employees will support but will be difficult to monitor! 

    • That's great to hear Laura.

      Yes I know what you mean re monitoring the working from home days.  Will be interesting to hear how this works.

      Karen :)
