Musical display to support desktop workers

Currently, with the GetaMoveOn network, Joe is investigating how music can be used in the workplace to support desktop workers. Modern workers spend a great deal of time sitting, which can be harmful to both their physical mental wellbeing. However, at the same time, there is an increasing focus on productivity which means taking breaks can be difficult.

Joe’s research is looking at how people use music to both aid concentration and lift their mood, and how this may be used to encourage a change in workplace behaviour to support healthy break taking.
