Makes the world go round, but does it make you more productive at work? While researching for this blog post, I found some great in-depth articles on the subject of music and productivity at work. One of the best articles I found on this subject was the complete guide company employee list to listening to music at work by adam pasick. Instead of rehashing all the great information and tips on listening to music at work, the effects of music on the brain, and productivity levels, I thought it would be fun to get a little more personal.
I emailed the bandzoogle team to ask them about their music habits at work. I really appreciated the answers and I hope you will too! 1) do you listen to music while working? Why or why not? Chris- yeah. I work better in the evening and I always company employee list have music. Anything without lyrics, or with non-english lyrics so I can focus. Stacey - half the time, yes. I focus better when there is background noise and it helps keep my energy/motivation going during the day while I work from homeallison - I would love to but I'm too caught up in the lyrics, riffs, backing vocals, etc.
So it's too hard to concentrate. For this reason, I generally work in complete silence. Sometimes I go crazy so I put on an ambient noise app like coffitivity or listen to music without words. Mélanie - I prefer total calm and don't tend to put on music while I work. Which is company employee list funny because my husband is a musician, so his practice on the grand piano downstairs tends to bleed, and I love listening to that! Justin - it depends on what I'm doing. If I'm doing a task that involves a lot of repetition, I'll listen to music to keep my mind active.
