Valuable benefits of a workplace choir

 

Why do group singers feel such a ‘buzz’?

Group singing triggers the release of all 4 ‘happiness hormones’ in the body: dopamine, serotonin (associated with feelings of exhilaration and contentment), endorphins and oxytocin. The importance and significance of oxytocin must not be underestimated here. This hormone is usually released during physical contact and has been found to promote trust and togetherness, whilst reducing stress and anxiety. Group singing is one of very few ways to produce significant levels of oxytocin without physical contact, which makes it an ideal activity for workplaces. Singing in a choir is one of very few ways to produce high levels of oxytocin without physical contact.

As well as the invaluable release of beneficial hormones, group singing reduces levels of cortisol in the body. Cortisol has been called ‘the stress hormone’. Singing increases lung capacity, improves posture, boosts the immune system and increases mental alertness due to greater oxygenation. These benefits are further enhanced by the warmups and exercises associated with choral rehearsals.

Thanks Keara! Just wanted to let you know our singing group have learned, benefited so much from your huge bank of knowledge in singing with us over the past five months. Keep up the good work!

Other Benefits:

 

A choir can lead to a massive increase in team effectiveness in the workplace. Teams gel better and thrive for longer, performing beyond their ceilings of expectation.
Employee fulfilment and retention rates increase thanks to improved morale, reduced stress and deep social connections.

Employees benefit from the self-confidence that choral performance provides. This benefits their communication and presentation skills.
Engaging staff in a new and exciting way boosts productivity, creativity and general wellbeing in the workplace.

Choir rehearsals are a unique opportunity for colleagues from different departments and different levels of the organisation to meet, and to make great friends in the process. This breaks down barriers, improves communication, and brings a renewed sense of pride, direction and focus to the organisation.
