Study finding show surprising ways connected lighting can reduce noise distribution in the workplace
Most office-dwellers are used to noise disturbances at work. Chatting colleagues, loud coffee machines and printers, even awkward silences – all are factors in what can be called ‘acoustic discomfort in the workplace.’ Findings from the 2017 survey, undertaken by Leesman and involving more than 250,000 respondents, revealed a strong need to improve acoustic comfort in the workplace. To better understand the challenges in achieving an acoustically comfortable workspace, Signify conducted a qualitative study. We spoke to 30 office workers, facility managers and HR managers about their needs and how our connected lighting systems (www.interact-lighting.com/global) could provide a solution.
