Reduce Noise Distraction In Your Houston Offices
Open office environments have been with us for a long time. We might tend to think that it is a relatively recent trend, but in some industries, it was the norm. In stock brokerage office of the past, an open floor was the norm. Who can forget the scenes from the busy bullpen in the 1980’s movie Wall Street?
If you recall that movie, you may also remember how noisy that environment was. Today, open office environments are pervasive across many industries. Open environments encourage more interaction between workers and impromptu discussions with team members sitting nearby. But these new environments also introduce more ambient noise. While the telephone is no longer the preferred way to communicate, people still talk at their desks, while walking by, and in those impromptu discussions in an open hallway. That type of noise introduces distraction that can hamper productivity.
Back in the 1980s, there weren't great solutions for dealing with ambient noise. Since that era, significant strides have been made in sound processing technology that has been used in many areas. For example, many modern automobiles employ sound canceling technology to limit harsher road and engine noises. Similar technology is available for office environments to make it easier for workers to stay focused.
