Sound Masking for HR Managers

Sound Masking increases employee satisfaction – while enabling HR Managers to keep private conversations confidential.

HR Managers are tasked with a variety of core competencies in the workplace. One of the most critical portions of their job is handling sensitive and private information both verbally and digitally. Typical methods for preventing unauthorized access to personal information or classified proprietary and tactical information focus on securing computer servers and electronic communications. Securing verbal communications from being overheard is often underserved due to high construction and labor costs. In today’s modern office the lack of speech privacy is a real problem. Acoustics and sound privacy are often overlooked during construction.

Corporate environments feature a variety of workspaces that require their own unique solutions for improving worker comfort, productivity, and speech privacy. Sound Masking Systems helps HR Managers improve acoustic environment, enabling employees to feel more comfortable sharing information with the concern of being overheard.

Sound masking works by adding sound to a space to actually make the space seem quieter and more private. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true. This is because the added sound reduces the intelligibility of human speech. When employees can’t understand what someone is saying, their words are less distracting – in fact, workers probably don’t even notice them, thus making conversations more private, preserving the sensitive and confidential nature of conversations with one’s HR Manager.
