Today Open Ear (http://www.openearmusic.com
), Scotland’s leading music design company, launches their campaign to “Stop Businesses Playing Annoying Christmas Music”. As Christmas approaches, businesses all over the country are preparing to unleash the same old staid, predictable Christmas music on their customers and staff.
Most are unaware of the detrimental effect it has on anyone listening, and Open Ear’s campaign is designed to educate employers on these negative effects. In 2006, the UK government was asked to investigate the effects of Christmas music on staff and customers by various trade unions. It was found that repeat plays of songs can have serious negative implications on people’s mood and motivation, and this is most apparent with retail and licensed venue staff, who are often exposed to one or two CDs playing on repeat.
The campaign is already gathering pace!
