Silence is not golden
New research released this week from music licensing organisations PPL and PRS for Music suggests that silence in the workplace is far from golden. The research found that:
- over three quarters (77%) of SMEs say that playing music in the workplace increases staff morale, and creates a better atmosphere and working environment for staff and customers.
- 65% of businesses say that music in the workplace makes people more productive.
- over one in five businesses (22%) admit they would prefer to lose a day's trade than operate in a silent environment.
