Tuning into the airwaves is one way to block out the stresses and strains of corporate life; this week the Couch?! probes at your cultural preferences and ponders why it is that Classic FM gets you reaching for the volume button.
A survey by Peninsula employment law firm has revealed that the likes of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Chopin are more likely to get a place in your IPod playlist than any pop, rock or indie bands.
Classical music has proved the most desirable genre whilst working with Classic FM tops the poll of workers favourite radio station with 23%.
The number of employers blaring out music in the workplace has also doubled over four years when a similar poll was taken.
The results are as follows:
- Radio 1: 12%
- Radio 2: 21%
- Radio 5: 7%
- Classic FM: 23%
- Local radio: 20%
- Others: 17%
We’re intrigued by your sophisticated musical tastes and would like to test the HR waters to see what songs, artists and radio station gets you humming and do bop a bopping.
