If you’re like many businesses, you’re probably planning a return to the office. From rekindling old coworker friendships, making a splash in your vibrant work culture, increasing more productivity, going back to the office brings a variety of benefits.


However, it’s also important to note that this transition might not be taken seamlessly by all of your staff. While they may look forward to feeling more like a team again, they’ve probably been working from home for more than a year now, and sudden changes can be difficult to endure.


That’s why Building Systems Solutions is here to help. With our custom-made, tailored-to-your-needs sound masking systems, we can help you make your company’s return to in-person work sensationally stress-free.

Sound Masking: The Ultimate Stress-Buster

Switching from working from home to working in a noisier office environment can be quite taxing for some employees. After a full year of working in relative quiet, now your staff must switch gears at the drop of a hat. It’s a lot to ask, and for the employees may have a difficult transition, it can cause significant stress that drags down productivity.


Enter sound masking. Sound masking allows you to eliminate the constant auditory pressure of outside conversations and create a quiet workspace that mimics that of an at-home employee. Extroverted staff can rejoice in being able to speak to coworkers in person again without needing to yell in a noisy office, while introverted ones can socialize at their own pace.

What About the Long Term?

Sound-managed workspace isn’t just an in-the-moment comfort; we’ve done a whole sound management blog post on “How Sound Masking Increases Worker Comfort.” Even after your team is well-established once more, they’ll appreciate working in the flexible, pro-privacy environment sound masking creates.

With Reduced Stress, Your Team Can Embrace Productivity

Pivoting, switching approaches, whatever you want to call it—that takes energy, and that energy could be better spent on the task at hand. When you maintain a comfortable, home-like atmosphere with sound masking, you’ll give your team the physical resources they need to succeed.


That’s not a temporary benefit, either; check our sound masking blog on “How Does Sound Masking Increase Worker Productivity?”.
