How productive is your workspace? 53% of workers are distracted when trying to concentrate. 42% use makeshift solutions to block the noise. This was determined in a 2013 US Workplace Survey by Gensler. Smaller individual workspaces and a move to more collaborative space design are two possible contributors to the increase in workplace distractions.
This same study by Gensler found that employees who can focus are 31% more innovative, had a 14% higher level of job performance and a 31% improvement in job satisfaction. While improving collaboration is one of the biggest trends in the workplace; it is clear that we also need to consider solutions to reduce noise levels and distractions to allow for concentration and productivity in the workspace.
We have art solutions that can help.
- Acoustic Art Panels
A digital image is printed on fabric and wrapped around an acoustic panel. This panel muffles noise and the art itself adds an aesthetic quality to the space.
- Window Films
In an ideal workplace, we would all have a view of green rolling hills, multi-colored autumn trees, or a sparkling city landscape. In reality, the window nearest to our workspace might just show a brick wall of the building next store – or even a dull concrete parking lot. While the natural light from the window has a positive impact on people, this less than ideal view of the outdoors can be less than motivating. Consider using an art-covered window film to improve the scenery, without sacrificing the external light.
