At Socialfly, we celebrate every work week by playing office tunes every Friday, supplied by the resident office DJ–myself [Amber] and of course, a premium Spotify subscription. We’ve found that playing music in the office results in a collaborative work environment (inspired by the likes of Frank Ocean and Drake), and puts a general beat in everyone’s step that gets us pumped up for the weekend.
In a New York Times article, Teresa Lesiuk, an assistant professor in the music therapy program at the University of Miami, shared that she “found that those who listened to music completed their tasks more quickly and came up with better ideas than those who didn’t because the music improved their mood.” In other words, putting yourself in a creative environment improves the creativity and productivity of your work.
In addition to productivity, music has the ability to boost the mood of your office. webpageFX.com recently shared an infographic that shows that 77% of both small and medium-sized business owners agree that music increases their company morale. As a creative agency, at Socialfly we see the value in adhering to one of our core company values–”Create fun.” This is why recently I put together our “TGIFlyday” playlist on Spotify, which features musical favorites from every member of the Socialfly squad. From boy bands to old-school hip-hop, Taylor Swift, Faith Hill, and everything in between–our Friday playlist are made of classic favorites as well as songs you may have never heard before. It’s a true representation of every personality on our team and allows everyone to share their favorite jams and musical genres with their co-workers.
If you’re looking to bring some sounds to your office other than the click of a mouse and typing of a keyboard, check out our official agency playlist here, or create your own office playlist on Spotify and share it with us! Also be sure to follow Socialfly on Twitter, where we’ll be sharing our new music Friday favorites and playlist additions weekly.
