Can music improve your work life? Can you listen to music and still be productive or even better? The research conducted here investigated the effect of music on work productivity, by measuring the work performance of employees over a period of time. The emphasis was on how productive employees can be with the influence of music. In a world filled with hectic schedules, increased workload and pressure, care must be taken to ensure that there is some way to cope with such issues. This research is a stepping stone that provides an insight into music and work productivity. The dearth of research in this area has prompted investigation, which will hopefully provide for and create a change in the work environment. Introducing music into the work environment should serve to help people and work productivity, rather than become a distraction. It is hoped that there will be more research in this area.
