Music in Offices, creating harmony in Law Firms across the City
31 January 2017
For over ten years we’ve been providing some of the UK’s top businesses with musical services to help enhance employee engagement and wellbeing. Having the opportunity to sing or play an instrument brings people to the office with a spring in their step. This week we met with Matthew Rhodes @ RoF, himself a keen singer and lover of music, and he agrees with the positive impact making-music at work can have on businesses.
Our clients get time away from their desks each week where they can escape from the pressures of the day, bang a drum, absorb themselves in learning that tune on the guitar, or understanding the intricacies of Lieder and the voice, which brings them back to their desks feeling revitalised, happier and more productive. The process of learning something new and different to everyday ‘work’ helps to develop transferable skills such as how to give constructive, positive feedback and finding "more creative solutions to the issues of the day." Jason Milner, Systems Manager Engineer, Linklaters.
Singing in an office choir extends networks and makes people feel part of a community as well as boosting confidence and being a lot of fun!
Law firms embracing music include Linklaters, Herbert Smith Freehills,
Norton Rose Fulbright, Trowers & Hamlins, MacFarlanes, Ashurst, Reynolds
Porter Chamberlain, Holman Fenwick Willan, Baker & McKenzie and we are
launching at Travers Smith this week!
Rose Fulbright even have their own music room! "The positive impact that
music-making has in our business and its people is significant. Music in
Offices has provided us with a highly motivating and valuable initiative which
has boosted staff morale." Peter Martyr, CEO Norton Rose Fulbright.
