10 Things You Should Stop Complaining About at Work

Adam Starr

March 01, 2010



Temperature

Businesses are interested in creating a productive work environment, not a snuggly nap room or a frozen icebox. Consequently, your employer will set the thermostat within a (hopefully humane) range that encourages productivity. No matter where you work, somebody is going to be too cold and somebody else is going to be too hot. However, you’re not in kindergarten- whining about the temperature is futile. 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.

    And if my employer keeps it so cold that I have to wear gloves in the office? Can I complain then?

    Great tips! I can dig all except the temperature. I'll complain until I'm blue in the face. Literally.
