It’s frustrating isn’t it?
You’re in the middle of a great video meeting, full of ideas, solutions and plans for the future, and then…
appears as your colleague’s image goes blank.
A poor internet connection has been a pain for many people while they’ve been working from home.
What do we really expect? There are more people video calling, working online, streaming music, films and TV in their homes. All at the same time.
Things were never going to be working at optimum levels.
But it doesn’t help your productivity.
So what do you do if your team’s home connection isn’t what it should be? Especially for those who will be working from home as a more permanent option.
First, check what services are available in their location, and what the coverage of available providers is like. Are they with the best provider already, or would a move be beneficial?
Could your business subsidise their move to a faster internet service?
Next, look at their routers. Is there a better one available for the kind of work your business does? Consider whether a range extender would solve any issues too.
It’s not always straightforward, but giving your people the right tools for the job is vital, right?
