Listening To Music Makes You A Better Employee

Posted at June 13th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

A new study was undertaken by Mindful Labs using 26 participants over 5 days. To see whether music had an effect on speed and accuracy and what effect different types of music had, participants were given tasks during the study. According to the results, 9 out of 10 employees perform better at work if they’re listening to music and 81% are more efficient. The employees are also 88% more accurate while completing tasks.

According to neuropsychologist and chairman of Mindful Labs, Dr. David Lewis,

“The take-home message is that music is a very powerful management tool if you want to increase not only the efficiency of your workforce but also their mental state, their emotional state – they’re going to become more positive about the work.”

 

Ambient Music is best for solving equations and doing other such work. Atmospheric ambient tracks help a person focus. Pop Music makes you work faster and meet your deadlines. It’s also good for data entry tasks as participants were doing 58% more work while listening to pop music. They also made 14% less mistakes and had more accurate spelling. Classical Music helps with numbers and participants were 12% more accurate while doing their work.

 

 

 

But Dance Music takes the cake. It’s the most performance enhancing music you can listen to. Participants were more accurate and efficient across all tasks. Dance music boosts performance in abstract reasoning and proof-reading type activities especially.

So the next time you’re wondering about what playlist to pick when you’re plugging in your earphones, you know what to choose!
