Benefits of Music at Work

With people returning to work after a three-day weekend we thought we would focus on something fun and motivating for today’s blog topic and that is music! Whether you are working from home, or are back in the office, having a motivating music playlist can set the tone for the day. LinkedIn found that 90% of workers performed better when they listened to music. In addition to improving productivity, it also releases your feel-good neurotransmitter, dopamine, which can also help improve your focus. In today’s blog we’ll look at how different types of music affect you and how to implement music into your own work environment.

In their study, LinkedIn also points out that different types of music work best depending on what tasks you need to accomplish. Need to make a bunch of calls and have a high energy day? Then listen to something upbeat. Need to work on spreadsheets and focus? Then listen to something more soothing like ambient or classical music. While this may seem like common sense, the statistics behind it are worth noting. For those doing data entry, ambient music improves accuracy by 92%. Listening to classical music improves accuracy by 12%. Pop music had been shown to reduce mistakes by 14% and pop music also helps 58% of people complete their data entry tasks faster. What type of music you choose can be huge for boosting productivity.

When working in an office, it’s important to realize that there will likely be varied taste in music. Make sure to take each member of your team's preference into consideration and change up the music so it’s inclusive and everyone has a bit of what they enjoy. Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music all have a variety of playlists you can find by simply searching for “work playlist,” but we recommend getting creative. Maybe members of your team can each put together their own work playlist and you play them in the office, switching it up each day. If your workplace is too varied, and some employees need soft ambient music all day and others need something livelier, it might be a better idea to implement headphones. Try it out and see what works best for your environment. Of course, if you’re still working from home, then by all means play your favorite songs all day long, being mindful of the type of music as mentioned above, and see how it affects your productivity and happiness at work.

We know that technical skills are essential to get a good job but these days having soft skill has also become essential to grab the best job opportunity. I am truly appreciating that there is also a need to have a soft skill.

The more distracting it can be to you and the purpose of listening to music when you are studying is to help you focus on the job, so keep it in the background. However, if music distracts you and complete silence helps you concentrate best.

After two weekend holidays, working is no less than a torment. I just start my work with listening music to stay motivated. It is a good strategy.
