Good Music Boosts Staff Morale 74%

14 May 2010

Music in the workplace has huge benefits for you and your employees, according to MusicWorks. A cost-efficient and effective way to improve staff morale and reduce employee sickness in your workplace is to play music, according to a survey by MusicWorks*,

The MusicWorks campaign is aimed at encouraging businesses to play more music and surveyed over 1,200 workers. The studies found that 71% wanted music played in the workplace, of which:

  • 74% of employees enjoy going to work more if music is played
  • 85% feel happier by listening to music at work
  • A quarter of staff are less likely to take time off sick if good music is being played at work
"Staff morale is the heart of runnung a successful and motivated business" said Christine Geissmar, Head of Performance Operations at PPL. "There are many ways in which staff morale can be improved, and our research shows that music can, in fact, achieve this. This is good news for HR Managers and Directors wanting to find a different, cost effective way to boost staff morale in the workplace"

MusicWorks is a joint initiative by music licensing companies PPL and PRS for Music. PPL collect income on behalf of performers and record companies and PRS for Music collect on behalf of songwriters and publishers. In order to play music legally in your work place you need a licence for both. A licence from PPL can cost from as little as 16 pence per day and gives access to a catalogue containing millions of songs.
