Noise and Wellbeing at Work
Noise in the workplace is having a negative impact on the wellbeing of employees and impacting significantly on their productivity, according to a major new survey.
In a survey of 1,000 UK-based office workers, 65% reported that noise in the workplace impacted on their ability to complete work in an accurate and timely manner. Nearly half (44%) said that noise had a negative impact on their overall wellbeing, with over 40% reporting that noise at work caused them to feel stressed.
The ‘Noise and Wellbeing at Work 2019’ survey has been conducted by intelligent business solutions company The Remark Group, supported by environmental psychologist and workplace strategist Dr Nigel Oseland, an honorary senior lecturer at UCL’s Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering.
