A common way employees try to remain productive is to listen to music if the job permits. Some workers like to listen to music when they find themselves losing focus.

Can music increase production At work? It is no secret that music has some kind of effect on the human body. This is because the melodious sounds that we hear encourage the release of dopamine in our brain. Think of it as a reward. Dr. Amit Sood, a physician of integrative medicine with the Mayo Clinic says, “People’s minds tend to wander, and we know that a wandering mind is unhappy. Most of that time, we are focusing on the imperfections of life. Music can bring us back to the present moment.” In recent studies those who listened to music completed their tasks more quickly and came up with better ideas than those who didn’t because the music improved their mood.
Using science tested information; you can increase productivity at your business. In some instances, you may have someone who is not doing a good job, and people may say that all they do is listen to music all day and aren’t being productive. Well just how music is a reward, the privilege to listen to music is a reward also and can be taken away. Dr. Sood states that limits should be placed on listening to music at the workplace, saying that “15-30 minutes is all it takes to regain concentration.”
