Of all the distractions that come with working in anoffice, the biggest is not the room temperature orthe traffic sounds from outside. It’s ourselves.


In a survey commissioned by office-equipmentmaker Poly and conducted by research firm FutureWorkplace, 76% of respondents said a co-workertalking loudly on the phone created a moderate, high, or very high level of distraction for them whileat work in their primary workspace, making it themost commonly cited disruption in the survey. Noise from a co-worker talking nearby was citedby 65% of respondents.

办公设备制造商Poly委托调研公司Future Workplace开展的一项调查显示,76%的受访者认为同事在办公室里大声讲电话会造成中高度或极高水平的干扰,这也是是此次调查中发现的最常被提及的干扰源。65%的受访者指出同事在旁边说话会对工作造成干扰。

The sound of coffee being made is a moderate to very high distraction for only 26%, while 46% said they were distracted by pets in the office (which was less than the 53% who reportedmoderate to very high distractions caused by visiting children).


The global study of designs and distractions in offices surveyed 5,150 employees who work atleast three days minimum in a corporate environment.
