Do you enjoy listening to the radio as you go about your work? If so, you're not alone. A survey has revealed that workers in small companies, such as painting and decorating firms, are happier and more productive in the workplace when music is playing.
The research, conducted by music licensing organisations, PPL and PRS, found that over three quarters of small business owners believe that background tunes help to boost staff morale. What's more, 65 per cent believe that music also makes their employees more productive.
The research also found that one in five of the bosses surveyed would rather lose out on a day's trading than operate in silence.
Christine Giessmar, director of operations at PPL, said: "Music provides an effective and adaptable tool for bringing a sense of pleasure and relaxation to the work environment, thereby promoting a positive attitude, and higher job satisfaction. A completely silent work environment can lack stimulation, interest and, for many people, a dynamic and creative source of energy."
