This behavior is controlled by the option EvaluationCompletionAction.

To enable this setting for the front end in general, evaluate the
following command:

  SetOptions[$FrontEnd, EvaluationCompletionAction -> {"Beep"}]

If you just want it to apply to the current working notebook, evaluate
the following command in that notebook:

  SetOptions[SelectedNotebook, EvaluationCompletionAction -> {"Beep"}]

This option may also be modified using the front end Option Inspector
dialog with the scope indicator set to "global" or "notebook"
respectively.
