Does this sound like you? You work in a cubical and you can’t focus because you have to listen to the guy next to you share with a client – yet again – “In my 20 years of experience, I would never . . .” or, having to listen to another coworker complaining about their lost sale story. Or how often do you feel you can’t comfortably speak on the phone to a customer without finding yourself having to tone it down so you don’t distract others?
There is a solution many companies are quickly taking advantage of that pays for itself in 30-60 days. It’s called “Sound Masking”. Sound masking is the addition of an unobtrusive background sound, similar to airflow, to reduce the intelligibility of human speech and reduce distractions. The resulting environment leads to greater productivity and increased privacy and comfort.
Sound masking is used in a variety of ways – in a large office environment or even in key areas where privacy is crucial such as a conference room or the office of the HR Director.
Privacy can be a matter of law too. When considering HIPPA laws in the medical industry, when your work involves patient privacy, it’s serious business.
Increased productivity can give a business a return on your investment in 30 days in an average office of 50 people or less based on how much more focused your employees are to do their job. Over 1 year, a business could see an ROI of 7x the investment. This would vary on each company.
