    Do you listen to music while you work? If so do you use earphones.

    and do you think it should be allowed in the workplace.

    used to - not using earphones but since i took the stereo home i havnt bothered to bring it back in - im out on the floor more now.

    I have no problems with it as long as its not too loud or on 2day

    obviously certain jobs do not allow for it

    I used earphones I have about 5 GB of music on my work PC.

    I work allot better when I'm using it.

    In our office there are a couple of f-ers that don't like it, that are trying to stop it.

    There are about 30 out of 300 people that listen to music.

    I do sometimes, probably once a week I will work with some music going.

    Our office is open plan but I am one of only 2 people with a office so the noise is not really a issue but I know when people on the workstations play music it annoys some.

    i use a radio in my office.
    Sometimes when the other staff dont want it on i change to headphones. This is not a problem as my phone flashes red when it rings so i know when to answer it. I too, work a little better with music going.

    some do but some dont, when they dont thats when people whinge. I dont really see why when it is open plan and you can hear everyone else talking all the time.

    I hate open plan offices!!!!
