The study, commissioned by MusicWorks, also revealed that:

Jonathan Morrish, spokesperson at MusicWorks said, “Music can play a crucial role in increasing productivity by creating the right working environment for staff. This research is great news for offices already playing music as it is proof that this can significantly benefit the business and boost their staff’s well being.”

The MusicWorks study has been jointly carried out by UK music licensing companies, PPL and PRS for Music. As well as the financial and emotional benefits playing music brings, there are also legalities surrounding the use of music in public.

A licence from both companies is required to play music. PPL collects on behalf of record companies and performers and PRS for Music collects on behalf of songwriters and publishers, as well as the live sector. More information can be found at or
