What People Listen To At Work

Benefits of music at work image
Did you ever wonder about the musical tastes of the people you work with? Spotify recently did a study of what people listen to at work and why, and the results are fascinating. According to the study:
  • 61% of people listen to music at their desks, and say it makes them happier and more productive
  • 36% said it helps them through their day, specifically from 9AM to 1PM and 2 to 4PM
  • 20% said music alleviates boredom
  • 16% use music to drown out annoying co-workers
But it was the tastes of listeners at work that was most interesting.
  • 34% gravitated to pop and chart toppers
  • 29% preferred rock
  • 22% played indie
Who were the artists that most listened to?
  • Adele - 16%
  • Arctic Monkeys - 14%
  • Rihanna - 13%
  • Mumford & Sons - 13%
  • Bruno Mars - 12%
  • Beyonce - 12%
  • Katy Perry - 12%
Remember that this study is based around what people listen to on Spotify, and doesn't necessarily apply to any other distribution medium, but it's still interesting.
