If productivity is wavering in your workplace, it’s in every manager’s best interests to understand what's causing the issue. Sometimes it can be external factors - such as the effect of the pandemic on people’s personal lives has been well discussed and documented. However, there could be some internal factors that are hindering productivity.

At Remark Group, we’re dedicated to exploring what makes an office space work at its optimum: factors relating to wellbeing and comfort have come out on top as paramount to creating a thriving work environment.

One of the most complained about issues in the office are those surrounding noise and lack of privacy.

The more distracting noises you have in the office, the more likely your employees will be interrupted and struggle to focus on the task at hand. Noise combined with tight deadlines is a recipe for increased stress levels. So, not only is noise bad for productivity, it's also bad for your employees’ wellbeing.

In fact, a survey conducted by the Remark Group revealed that 65% of UK office workers found noise in the workplace impacted on their ability to complete work in an accurate and timely manner.

Fortunately, there is technology available to combat these issues simultaneously.

In this guide we’re discussing how sound masking can improve employee’s work productivity.

How can sound masking improve employee’s work productivity?

Sound masking provides 360° immersive sound dispersion. It raises the level of ambient sound in the office. Utilising the same frequency as human speech, it dulls conversations from across the room or in different areas of the office, making them unintelligible. This means your employees will spend less time tuning into discussions or potentially even sensitive private conversations and more time focusing on the task at hand. Likened to the sound of air flow, sound masking is non-intrusive and fades into the background whilst improving on productivity levels.

As for privacy levels, employees won’t have to worry about being overheard when discussing private or confidential information with colleagues and clients alike.
