Picture this: it's Monday morning. You come into work early to tackle your to-do list. You grab a cup of coffee, sit down at your desk and start typing. You make a lot of progress - until you hear the dreaded sound of your coworkers loudly discussing what they did over the weekend.  From air conditioning and obnoxious ringtones to other people's voices, all these interruptions create a workplace full of distractions. Fortunately, sound masking can help.  But, what exactly is sound masking and how does it work? How does it promote office privacy and a better workplace culture? Can it help you achieve an agile workplace and attract new talent? Here at Egyptian Workspace Partners, we believe sound masking is just as important as any other workplace technology. In this article, we'll explain what sound masking is, how it works and its benefits. Then, we'll work together to help you find the best sound masking solution for your business.  What is Sound Masking?    Sound masking is an ambient background noise engineered to match the frequency of human speech. Similar to the sound of airflow, sound masking reduces noisy distractions, protects speech privacy and helps people feel more comfortable at work.
