How To Improve Team’s Productivity
Improving the productivity of your team is a win-win for your business. Not only does it allow you to make the most of the talents of your employees, it benefits them too. Productive employees are typically happier employees.
In 2019, we conducted a ‘Noise and Wellbeing at Work’ survey which asked over 1,000 UK respondents how noise affects their day-to-day working life. The results indicated that unwanted noise severely impacts employees’ stress levels and – in turn – their productivity.
60% of respondents indicated that their employer has ‘productivity issues,’ with much of the blame being placed on distracting noises. Conversations that vary in volume and bursts of laughter were said to be the most irritating noises, impacting the most on productivity.
So, with this in mind, tackling distracting noise in your office is a great way of boosting your team’s productivity. At Remark, we offer two solutions which make this much easier to achieve.
Sound Masking was designed with three main goals in mind: to enhance productivity, provide greater privacy, and to benefit employees’ wellbeing. How does it work? Emitters are placed strategically around the workplace, outputting subtle ambient sounds, which match the frequency of human speech. The intelligibility of conversations and other distracting sounds is reduced, making it much easier for employees to focus on their work. The sound is unobtrusive and blends seamlessly into the background.
If you want to take things a step further, you can also consider Soundscapes. This system produces serene ambient sounds, which are designed to put employees at ease, adding further privacy and making it easier still for them to concentrate. As a bonus, it can calm workers and give their mental wellbeing a boost.
