Soundscapes on the other hand can offer a variety of different sounds into the environment including, bird song, water flowing, wind rustling through trees and even cityscapes.
Workplace wellbeing is more important than ever. We want employees to feel safe and comfortable when working in the office. Soundscapes are the perfect way to provide your employees with a sense of wellbeing and comfort.
It is no secret that access to nature can help reduce stress levels and help improve our overall wellbeing; but for those working in cities and built-up areas, experiencing nature can be hard, particularly during the working day.
That’s where office soundscapes are the ideal solution. Providing soundscapes in open plan offices, breakout areas and shared offices is a great way of bringing the soothing effects of natures indoors.
