If there is one thing that annoys people in the workplace, it is noise. This is not the greatest of news for employees. We say this because huge noise levels can result in more than simple irritation. There are actually several ways it can influence people. Read on to discover what some of them are.
For one thing, noise stresses people out. There is more to stress at work than office policies and deadlines. Noise leads to stress within our bodies too. Prolonged exposure to specific loud sounds cause psychological stress responses within us. This includes heart rate and blood pressure spikes. It is even possible to be affected by the sounds we hear inside offices.
A costly affair
Loud noises are a costly issue too. According to World Health Organisation estimates, the annual cost to Europe from considerable noise levels is £30billion. This includes productivity losses, healthcare costs, and lost working days. Inside that figure is a considerable amount of sick days. Compare it to home workers, and those in an open plan office take 70% more sick days.
Loss of focus when multitasking
You can also expect multitasking to be harder. The more you try to multitask, the greater the chance of environmental sounds becoming a distraction. Habitual multitaskers are more likely to lose focus because of it. In addition, once they lose it, it is harder for them to get their first task back into their heads.
