The findings of the report emphasize the importance of employee choice over the music they listen to when they work, arguing that in a time before remote work was possible, employees were not often able to choose the music they listened to.
In their findings, employees subjected to music they did not enjoy or listen to regularly were often less productive, more distracted, and even irritable.
Voices has compiled the most popular choices for work from home listening so that in-office employees may be better able to select tracks that encourage productive work, or so that remote workers can optimize their playlists.
The company has collected data and used their findings to isolate traits that are most often valuable in boosting productivity, including a breakdown of key signatures, BPM, and other technical factors found in popular songs. Voices found that sound and productivity are correlated strongly, which is important for both employees and employers to consider when crafting a workplace playlist.
Their report suggests a change may be in order for both in-office and at-home listening. While pop and electronic music both dominate in terms of popularity, their findings suggest that this may not be optimal, and that employees should instead listen to slower, more soothing music.
Voices has conducted this research as part of their mission to help employees everywhere connect with sounds that help them to work more effectively. As the largest marketplace for sound-based labor, Voices is the expert in the soundscapes that make up the private and professional lives of individuals everywhere.
Interested parties should read the full report to better understand the relationship between the music they listen to and their professional experience. The advice in the report can be used to create playlists which work with the brain and body to empower smarter, more efficient remote work.
