Why You Should Soundproof Your Workspace

Noise in the workplace can be extremely disruptive and many of us don’t ever realize just how it affects our productivity and morale. Of course, we are not including workplace noise that is so loud that it causes hearing damage, but the ambient noise that create those slight distractions that pull your attention away from your work. This inevitably causes workplace problems that can cost you and/or your company time and money. So, we’ve put together some of the more compelling reasons to soundproof your workspace or office!

Increased Productivity

It's simple. When you’re not distracted, you are able to reach and maintain a state of flow easier, faster, and longer. This means your mind is able to stay focused on the task at hand without your thoughts being interrupted or losing concentration. This lets your creativity shine through allowing you to share your best ideas clearly and with confidence.

Health Benefits

Loud noises in the workplace can not only startle you, but stress you out. Noise levels can be attributed to a host of health problems including workplace accidents, psychological stress, and stress from poor communication, just to name a few. Too much workplace noise can even lead to a reduced immune response and cause fatigue or aggression. The complexity of the tasks being performed can increase the stress workers feel causing increased mistakes, frustration, and even injuries. Reducing noise in the workplace is directly linked to reduced stress and increased worker satisfaction, which leads to fewer accidents and increased productivity, as well.
