Improve Your Office Productivity with Noise?

White Noise for Productivity

If you’ve spent much time in an office, you know just how distracting office noise can be.  Everything from co-workers talking when you’re on the phone to the noisy copier to your office neighbor’s mini-fan are all distracting and will destroy your focus.  Sadly, these types of distractions often go unaddressed.  Ignoring noise distractions cuts down on employee productivity and on a company’s bottom line. Huge amounts of money are wasted every year by distractions and, ironically, the solution is almost the same as the problem: noise.  Called white noise, this higher frequency noise makes the distracting noise less pronounced.  Office conversations become inaudible, along with many of the other distracting sounds.  


White noise machines are easily affordable (and some are even free) and can make a huge difference in the level of noise that displaces your focus. This background noise is not readily noticeable, yet its impact on improving focus and eliminating distractions from the workplace is quite apparent.  With white noise in place, the chances of noise distraction are virtually eliminated, allowing for increased productivity and focus from everyone in the office.  While the concept is simple and relatively inexpensive, the results are a boost to any company’s bottom line and to employee’s level of productivity and comfort.
