How To Minimize Workspace Distractions And Maintain Effective Noise Control

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Are distractions in the office causing a reduction in productivity? If yes, Edwards and Hill is here to help you make the workspace atmosphere less distracting.

When a workspace is overwhelmed with distractions, productivity from the owner and employees falls short and a negative impact on the bottom line inevitably occurs.

Here are some tips on how your business can arrange workstations and tackle noise control to make the workplace overall less distracting and more productive:

Create separation amongst workers. It’s hard for employees to work productively if they are constantly talking to each other or looking over their shoulders. To resolve this problem, construct cubicles with dividers to establish a degree of separation between workers. Personal offices can also allow them to focus more on work as well.

Establish An Organized Work Environment. If desks are not cluttered with papers, supplies and other distracting items, your employees will be able to work easier and faster because they will be able to find files and supplies as needed. Sifting through clutter can be a thing of the past when file cabinets, bookshelves and executive desks are set in place.

Create computer and network management that’s focused on work tasks rather than distractions such as computer games and time-wasting activities on the Internet. Consider blocking websites that you know do not have any direct application to accomplishing your business bottom line and customer service needs.

Implement Noise Control. Loud conversations, laughter and sound from computer applications can all significantly distract workers. Chronic noise in the workplace can cause increase in blood pressure and heart rate. Excessive noise can even make employees moodier or depressed. To resolve ambient noise issues, enforce rules that put a limit on volume levels. Create white noise in the workspace such as the humming of fans to block out unwanted sounds. Supply employees with headphones so they may choose the sounds they want to hear at work such as their favorite music rather than a ringing fax machine.
