Coping with noise in the workplace

Coping with noise in the workplace

There are times that noise interrupts your concentration and flow. I believe many people tried different ways to avoid the noise. Roger Johansson at 456 Berea Street has created an article on discussing a way to cancel the noise through headphone and encourage people to suggest their ways to kill of noises. There are couple of interesting discussions going on there. Here is the snippet of the article:

Many offices today are really bad with regard to background noise. What is worse is that there isn’t a whole lot you can do about much of that noise (provided you don’t want it) unless you have the luxury of having a room of your own. Kind of like the old days when smoking was allowed in offices – there was no getting away from it for the non-smokers.

Common sources of office noise include:

  • Phones ringing, and ringing, and ringing. By the way – whoever invented ringtone melodies for mobile phones, I’d like to have a word with you in private.
  • People yelling to each other from one end of the office to the other instead of moving closer so they can talk.
