Does Your Open Office Reduce Productivity?  

Today’s open office designs (think cubicles) can reduce employee productivity and risk the privacy of conversations. Sound masking is a modern solution. It is a safe and comfortable way to reduce noise distractions in office spaces. It also makes nearby conversations unintelligible, thereby reducing privacy risks.  In office spaces, the background noise level is generally low. Hence, people unintentionally overhear conversations – a difficult situation for all concerned. To address this problem, sound masking systems emit a soft, inconspicuous background sound with the use of a loudspeaker system. The ambient sound level becomes more uniform and otherwise noisy distractions are muffled by the sound masking.
