Since the confinement that we lived during the pandemic, many things have changed, amongst them, noise tolerance. Although sometimes in our homes we couldn’t find a silent place,many of us made the necessary adaptations to crearte the quiet spaces we needed to work and we enjoyed every minute, and every second of the peace this spaces provided.
However, now that we are going back to offices the need for quiet spaces to work, especially in open plan spaces has arisen again. Now more than ever we are more aware of the typical office noises such as colleagues on phone calls, water cooler conversations, printers, phones ringing, constructions, among others.
Loud noises and acoustic challenges at offices affect the performance of workers and increases stress and anxiety. Deminishing as well the levels of concentration dedicated to the tasks and projects that we are working on, and making team work challenging. .
At Studiobricks we believe that silence is key to work performance, for this reason, on this article we will tell you how silence influences productivity and why sound isolation booths are becoming increasingly more popular at open space offices:
Silence: what we needed to increase productivity
Noise pollution is one of the biggest distractions at work, but at the same time it’s what deteriorates workers the most mentally. When team members have access to spaces where they can relax and fully focus on a task productivity increases. It’s not hard since is as simple as that. The ripple effects include higher worker satisfaction as team members optimize their time, avoid mistakes, which also facilitates relationships with other members of the organization.
Quiet spaces prevent physical as well as mental exhaustion, reduce the possibility of having migraines (by not being exposed to the stress of noise), improve memory, strengthen intention and action, help you improve and make you feel more comfortable.
