Fortus - #My Music Choice

1 June 2020

A few weeks back, we asked our Fortus people to choose their favourite music track to share with the rest of the team. Why? Because music has been scientifically proven time and again, to have a plethora of positive attributes, namely it;

  • Excites
  • Calms
  • Energises
  • Relaxes
  • Brings people together
  • Supports celebration
  • Reduces stress
  • Galvanises
  • Crosses ethnic boundaries
  • Has ageless appeal
  • Is gender neutral
  • Relieves pain
  • Encourages creative thinking
  • Improves memory
  • Aids sleep
  • ‘Says what you’re feeling without you having to saying a word’
  • Is thought provoking
  • Meaningful
  • And inspiring!

So, with that in mind, we wanted to use the ‘power of music’ to virtually ‘bring us closer together’, several times a day – after all, our people are intrinsic to our corporate culture and are at the very heart of everything we do.

It’s fair to say we have a somewhat diverse range of music taste and had some real surprises from a number of people, which made our #MYMUSICCHOICE that much more interesting and enjoyable for all concerned.

With over 70 of the team contributing from across the country and sharing their favourite ‘tunes’ to help us all get through lockdown, we managed to create quite a playlist, which you can listen to and watch here on YouTube. Alternatively, you can see the campaign here on LinkedIn

With the COVID-19 challenge still far from over, maybe you could consider something similar for your business?

If so, what track might you choose to share with your team, to help give strength, encouragement or inspiration?
