Boost Workplace Productivity
with Sound Masking

Noise distractions result in office workers being interrupted every 11 minutes¹, and it can take them up to 23 minutes to get back into the “flow” of what they were doing prior to the interruption.

Noise Distractions Cost Money

Researchers found that on average, employees wasted 21.5 minutes (4%) per day due to conversational distractions². Some studies found that this number can be as high as 86 minutes a day! Even using conservative estimates, this loss of productivity adds up to big monetary losses for companies.​
