In the workplace there are many built-in options to help mitigate unwanted sound and give the area an overall pleasant ambiance. After all, we want our workforce, ourselves included, to remain comfortable enough to focus on the task at hand. There are two main concerns when it comes to workplace acoustics:
The first, is making sure your work areas will be free of as many distractions as possible. In recent surveys, speech was consistently ranked #1 as the primary detriment to employee focus and was the highest rated complaint in regards to employee comfort. This means, the average office worker is constantly forced to realign their thoughts, check their recent work for errors, and continue again, all the while trying to tune out the nearby noise. As we've seen in offices before, such individuals may subsequently respond by trying to combat these distractions on their own, but bringing their own white noise, fans, or music can often lead to an even greater level of discomfort for those around them. These distractions take time away from the employee, which takes time away from productivity.
The second concern is securing your privacy, when what you say needs to be said in confidence. In many professional environments, in nearly every industry, there is a need for acoustic privacy. Conference rooms, private offices, and other designated private areas, are all places where what is said needs to be for the intended listeners only.
We have proudly partnered with Cambridge Sound Management, the leader in professional sound masking, to offer the ideal solution to reduce these workplace distractions and increase the privacy of interoffice communication. Their QT Pro® Sound Masking systems utilize a series of discrete, but powerful, speakers placed in the specific zones of your choice. Here at Phoenix, we have Certified Masking experts to install the entire system and create a truly consistent field of acoustic coverage.
Sound Masking is a versatile system and can be used in many other environments. If you have any questions about how it can benefit your organization, please contact us and we will be glad to answer your questions.
