Companies Using Karaoke to Improve Productivity & Social Improvement in the Workplace

Karaoke can be tons of fun, but the circumstances in which it is used affect the enjoyment of the participants a lot.  Karaoke machines first became widely available for sale in the United States in the early 1990s.  Home karaoke was endlessly entertaining.  Karaoke machines had two tape decks; one to play the backing music, and one to record.  Music-loving kids (and more than a few music-loving adults) could record themselves singing over instrumental tracks of their favorite songs, or even singing along with the original vocals if they did not have a karaoke tape of the song they wanted to sing.  A home karaoke machine could become the life of the party, especially around the holidays, since holiday spirit can motivate people who are otherwise musical scrooges to sing Christmas carols.  Those situations were a lot more fun than American karaoke bars, where the wait to sing your favorite song requires you to listen to hours of drunken strangers singing lousy songs that are outside their vocal ranges.

More Fun Than a Retreat

Karaoke with people you know strengthens social bonds, so it is no surprise that American companies are increasingly including karaoke DJs in workplace social events.  If you dread the awkward “ice breakers” at company social events, you are not alone.  We agree that it is better to spend time with your co-workers among timeless tunes, singing as friends, rather than being lectured by your boos or being awkwardly cajoled to lecture each other.  Genuine fun events like workplace karaoke parties can improve workers’ morale and prevent burnout and its associated ailments.
