Do You Listen to Music at Work? Then Take a Moment to Listen to This

If you’re reading this at work, there’s an excellent chance that music is playing. We’ve known for over a hundred years that music can increase worker productivity and satisfaction. It can also make a boring job more bearable.

These questions and more are brought up in a podcast called Game Plan. Take a listen.
