Noise pollution in the office has become an increasingly worse problem as the introduction of open plan offices has become more and more popular. Open plan offices have been designed to increase the productivity and teamwork among staff. This maybe a very appealing advantage, but there are some disadvantages to consider.
Some staff feel that the privacy they once had with cubicle style offices has been taken away and to make things worse, noise pollution in offices has increased which has a negative effect on concentration and stress levels. There are products and office furniture out there that has been specifically designed to help alleviate the amount of noise in the office with their acoustic properties.
