Listening to Music at Work
Listening to music, whether it be through speakers or headphones, is quite a common occurrence in the workplace. Manual workers such as builders, plumbers and labourers often listen to the radio throughout the day. Other professions such as programmers, designers and developers are often found working with headphones on listening to their favourite music or music which they claim helps them focus and be more productive. Even though this type of behaviour seems to be more common nowadays, there are still many people who believe listening to music while working is not only unprofessional, but also has a negative impact on the quality of work produced.
