Why are the acoustics in your office important? A massive 60% of people who work in open-plan offices report background noise and noise disturbances to be the number one cause of loss of concentration in the workplace

It is therefore vital that office acoustics are not overlooked, but implemented throughout all offices to ensure a happy and healthy environment for your staff – happy staff equals more productive staff equals a better bottom line. The links between happy staff and profitable companies are well established, and improving your office acoustics can be a simple way to create the right environment for your workforce
The Government Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment discovered a 38% increase in productivity where workplace acoustics had been optimised, confirming that office acoustics can simply no longer be ignored
What’s the problem?
Office machines and people talking on phones are primary sound sources in the offices; in addition to the pinging of mobiles and unanswered phones ringing. Where office acoustics have not been optimised, these sounds will travel throughout the office at pretty much full volume. The aim of acoustic treatments in offices is to absorb sounds throughout the office so that much less volume of sound reaches its unintended target
How to fix it?
The installation of the right acoustic solutions can greatly reduce overall ambient noise throughout an office. It can often be as simple as the installation of acoustic ceiling tiles in your suspended ceiling or fitting some panels onto the walls
The addition of acoustic screens, desk dividers, wall fabrics and pictures are all possible and all work together to improve the sound in the office and, as previously mentioned, the productivity, health and overall wellbeing of your work force
