Adding sound masking to a facility yields a significant return-on-investment through increased employee productivity.
A study by the Data Management Association found that open-plan workplaces that lack sound masking systems experience a 40 percent loss in productivity and 27 percent more errors.
Installing a sound masking system can also help companies save money on new construction projects. Work spaces with sound masking systems require less insulation and interior walls, less expensive ceiling tile and lower partitions, saving companies up to $3 per square foot.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE ROI A COMPANY CAN EXPECT WITH THE ADDITION OF A SOUND MASKING SYSTEM:
Annual salary of an employee: $30,000
Area occupied by the employee: 120 sq. ft.
Cost of masking per employee: 120 sq. ft. x $1.00 = $120
Salary recovered in productivity: 2% of employee’s time x $30,000 = $600
Return on investment: $600 (productivity gains per employee) vs. $120 (cost of masking per employee)
