Your business has recently embraced the open-office ideology, and you’re loving every minute of it. Letting employees openly share ideas, watching a tighter-kit team begin to take shape – while this method of doing business might not be right for everyone, it sure is right for you.
What’s also right for you: sound masking. You heard us right! The right sound management system can help any company succeed – even yours, and even now, when you’re all about hearing one another speak.
Don’t believe us? Let us explain what a custom-fit sound masking system can do for the company culture at your business!
What Is Sound Masking?
Sound masking is a technology that adds ambient background sound to an office or building. The ambient sound created by the system is proven to reduce or mask noise distractions, protect private conversations, and create a more comfortable environment.
Sound masking is different from white noise and does not “cancel out” other sounds. It is an inconspicuous sound that is engineered to match the frequencies of human speech.
Bustling Office or Peace and Quiet? Sound Masking Offers the Best of Both Worlds
There are benefits (obviously) to encouraging worker socialization, but there are also benefits to allowing spaces of peace and quiet for work. While your company culture might as a whole lean towards one or the other, you’d be wise to provide spaces for all types of employees to get their work done. Chances are you’ve got someone on the team who isn’t an extrovert 100% of the time!
Here’s what providing that space might look like in action if you purchase a sound masking system from Building Systems Solutions:
● Conversations can now be had without yelling. The awesome thing about an open-office workspace: everyone talks. The downside to an open-office workspace: everyone talks! This means that having small-group conversations can become next to impossible, as your workers will need to yell in order to hear one another, magnifying the problem. Sound masking dulls conversations that are not in the immediate space, resulting in a much more comfortable open-office plan for everyone.
● Workers can hear themselves think. Open-office spaces are great for socializing, but that won’t happen all the time – work still needs to get done! By quieting faraway conversations, sound masking enables your workers to better focus on their solo task at hand.
● Your environment can cater to what an employee needs to do their best work. We all have times where we just don’t feel like talking to people, and that’s okay! Sometimes we need peace and quiet to complete a job. By providing side rooms with sound masking, you can create places that are isolated from the office hustle and bustle, allowing employees to choose what space works best for them.
