Open Office Concepts Can Lead to Problems

Category: Sound Masking
September 5, 2019

One of the most popular trends in business in recent years has been the move towards open office concepts. Most businesses have turned away from the cubicle-cluttered mazes of the 80’s and 90’s, and have opted for a more spacious and inviting atmosphere for their employees to work in. There are many benefits to having an open office space, but there are also some drawbacks. We wanted to take a little time today to discuss some common issues that crop up in open offices, and how they can be fixed by a professional Maryland sound masking company.

Let’s Talk About the Noise

Say what you want about cubicles, but they do a good job of blocking noises from around the office. An office can become a noisy place between everyone talking on the phone, all of the typing, and the constant dinging of the office microwave (your Hot Pocket is done, get it already!). To rid yourself of these noisy nuisances you could switch to a closed office (though your employees may protest) or you could opt for some Maryland sound masking solutions.

What Can Sound Masking Do for My Maryland Business?

When you think of sound masking you may be thinking of something like a recording studio, with the walls covered in egg cartons. While we won’t be putting any egg cartons in your office, we do have a number of modern sound masking solutions at our disposal.

Sound masking is different from white noise, and this is an important distinction to make. White noise is loud, annoying, and can actually be a bigger distraction than the original noise you were trying to cover up. Sound masking, on the other hand, is played at a frequency that is pleasant to our ears; it’s played at the same frequency as human speech.

With sound masking, you no longer need to worry about being distracted by your coworkers’ conversations, or about sensitive information being overheard. If you’re a business that values its privacy, then you need to seriously consider some sound masking solutions.
