Sounds are a crucial part of the human experience. From how we communicate to how we work, the words and sounds around us have a massive impact on how our lives unfold. The sounds in our workplace can affect our ability to think, create and connect. In The Science of Sound, Part 2, we explore how noise and distracting sounds in the work environment can inhibit your productivity and concentration — and we will teach you how to deal with unwanted workplace noise.
Hearing is a sense we can’t turn off. Our ears are always on, and the sounds around us present constant opportunity for distraction. In the workplace, we are constantly listening to and analyzing the sounds in our environment, even if we aren’t consciously aware of this mental process.
This Is Your Brain on Noise
Background noise is more than just a nuisance. It’s an efficiency-killer, hindering productivity by up to 30% when performing tasks that utilize memory.
A Noisy Office Does Not Make for a Collaborative Atmosphere
Studies show people are less likely to help others under high-noise conditions. Noise is a plague upon open-plan office workers. If unwanted noise is hindering your communication and collaboration in the workplace, it’s time to make a change.
Making the Case for Mobility
The power of the mobile phone lies in its ability to empower workers to untether themselves from their deskphones and communicate clearly regardless of location.
Mobile First, Mobile Always
A mobile conferencing solution is the perfect collaboration tool for the increasingly mobile workforce, empowering professionals to communicate effectively every time, everywhere.
The desk phone has remained a staple in the corporate office because, before now, there was not a mobile conferencing solution that enabled high- quality conference calling on the go.
