Spotify recently partnered with research consultant Dr. Anneli Haake to release a study on the music listening habits of employees on the job, according to Billboard.
They found approximately two-thirds (61 percent) of people surveyed listened to something at their desks, and they reported it made them happier and more productive. Of those surveyed, 36 percent said music helped them through the day, specifically the hours from 9 a.m. through 11 a.m., 11 a.m. through 1 pm., and then 2 p.m.-4 p.m. Fifteen percent of participants surveyed reported they were most likely to listen to music during those hours.
Twenty percent of people surveyed said music alleviated job boredom, while 16 percent reportedly used music to drown out “annoying” co-workers. Ten percent of survey participants said they judged co-workers’ musical tastes, while nine percent worried their own music tastes were being judged while on the job.
The most-listened to artists in the survey include Adele (16 percent), Arctic Monkeys (14 percent), Rihanna and Mumford & Sons (13 percent), and Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry (12 percent).
