Business Productivity is “All About That Bass”

Music src=♬ ♪♫ Because you know I’m all about that bass, ‘bout that bass, no treble. ♫ ♪♬

Well, Meghan Trainor had it right with her hit song ‘All About that Bass’, because it really is all about the bass when it comes to music. Employees who listen to music throughout the day perform much better throughout their workday. Here’s a business productivity tip: When songs with deep basses come on it creates a feeling of empowerment. Classic cinema example would be Star Wars. Every time Darth Vader entered a scene he was followed with music that involved a deep bass…resulting in an empowerment message. So it really was all about that bass!

One of Powerhouse SMART’s Resource PRO’s, Darrell Katz, of Impact Training Solutions, always plays classical music when he hosts training workshop days. From a study by two researchers at Northwestern University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Darrell learned that listening to music in the workplace could put employees in the right frame of mind for their tasks ahead. The music allows employees to relax and approach tasks more comfortably. On training days that Darrell hosts, participants tell him how the music he plays reduces their anxiety about coming to these workshops. There’s also a specific pattern he has mastered. In the morning it starts off with classical music, and then moves into more contemporary, and finally by the afternoon he is playing that heavy bass to keep everybody’s energy alive.

So managers and company leaders this tip’s for you, tonight add songs to your IPod. Do you and your employees a favor by playing music in the office the following day. Observe reactions while the new music playing benefits all. We look forward to your comments below – music to our ears.
