8 in 10 of the 4,500 workers asked said that music helps to boost productivity in the workplace; however, only 62% of British workers are able to listen to music at work.

The report also showed the most popular genres of music in the workplace, with 35% of employees admitting they like to listen to pop or chart music. This was followed by rock (26%), rap (18%), electronic (12%) and finally classical (seven per cent).

John Salt, director, totaljobs commented on the report: “Our research has shown that music in the workplace can have a positive effect on employee productivity.

It’s important that employees are relaxed and happy in their roles, and can focus on their jobs to deliver at high level.”
