Office spaces are designed to be more cost-effective and to promote collaboration between employees. Unfortunately, they also limit privacy and increase distractions. Whether an employee is struggling to hear a customer on the phone, or a manager feels uncomfortable having a one-on-one conversation, the noise level of an office can directly impact productivity.
Commercial sound masking introduces electronically produced sounds that are distributed evenly throughout the office space. By raising the ambient sound levels in a space, speech and other distracting noises become indiscernible. Sound isn’t canceled, but the distance to which conversations can be heard and understood by others is reduced. There are many office sound masking systems available in the market today. In many cases, employees and/or patients don’t even know the system is on, but they would certainly recognize when it is off.
The Benefits of Commercial Sound Masking
With an effective sound masking system in place, workers are free to focus on the job at hand. Private business meetings or patient consultations remain private, without the concern for others overhearing sensitive information. Employees can better understand their phone conversation with a customer or client, as well, without the chatter from water cooler conversations down the hall.
Without a sound masking system, workers often improvise to avoid distraction. It’s not uncommon to walk through a workspace to see most employees drowning out the background noise with music playing in their headphones. Unfortunately, this solution has its own set of distractions and also limits important communication between coworkers. A well-designed sound masking system is an effective way to minimize noise distractions, increase employee productivity and maintain privacy while allowing employees to function and communicate as normal.
