Study after study has shown that noisy offices lower productivity. Whether through direct or indirect distractions, many office workers find it hard to stay focused in loud workplaces. The most common sounds that hamper work are colleagues talking to each other and taking calls, and the sounds of eating, singing/humming, and other “bodily noises” follow closely behind.
However, it’s just not feasible, nor is it desired, to give every worker a private office. Collaboration and open-concept offices have become more and more popular over the last decade, and there’s no reason to give up on that. So, what can you do to help your team?
Well, modern problems require modern solutions. That’s why the Furniture by Perry team is knowledgeable in sound dampening and sound masking systems to minimize noise in any area of your workplace!
