Tips for staying cool in the office

  • If possible, open the doors and windows early in the morning.
  • Close the blinds, even if the sun isn’t yet shining on that window.
  • Drink plenty of water; you can also get cold water from the drinks machines.
  • Don’t skip your break; a change of scenery improves your concentration. Find shade in the garden or by the delivery entrance in Kloksteeg.
  • Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothes.
  • Use a fan if necessary; most departments have one and a few are available at the service desk.
  • Find a cooler workspace in a different room; many people are off during the summer.
  • You can book a cooler workspace via SharedDesk. These can be found in the following corridors: C0, C1, D0, D210, E0, E1, E2, D4 and A2 (Executive Board corridor; check first with the Executive Board secretariat).
  • Work in the office in the morning and from home in the afternoon or evening if necessary.
  • If you prefer to work from home during the hot spell, follow the usual rules and discuss this first with your manager.

Have a great summer!
