Yes folks, it’s finally time. At least I hope so, right? It looks like we’re finally gearing up to put restrictions behind us and return to work in the office. But, let’s not pretend that working from home is a thing of the past. Work-from-home, and hybrid work, are going to be with us for a long time.
The before times
Way back in 2019, a lot of businesses weren’t prepared for working from home at all. We all worked really hard to make the shift quickly. And, we did. We did it as gracefully as possible. But now, we have an opportunity to plan for returning from work with a lot more time than we had before.
When we were scrambling in the spring of 2020, it was a rush to try to get set up. Solid Signal was there, and we were able to source a lot of that work-from-home gear faster than anyone else. Now Solid Signal is here to help you prepare your workplace for everyone’s return. We’re also here to help you as people transition from working from home to a hybrid model where some people work from home and some don’t.
1. Improve your internet
There’s a big difference between business internet and home internet. People’s homes have done an admirable job of handling multiple Zooms, but the stresses required on business internet are completely different.
When your employees return to work, the stresses on your office’s computer resources will be completely different. As people in the office access your resources, it can create congestion for home-based workers who need to access those same resources.
We can help! As AT&T Preferred Dealers, we can help you get industrial-grade internet installed. It’s not just in the 35 states where AT&T operates. We have agreements with most of the country’s local internet providers and we can help you get exactly the system you need.
2. Put the wiring where you need it
Maybe you really embraced the trends in workplace efficiency in the last year. Before 2020, we all worked in close proximity to each other on large, communal tables. We ate at our desks and touched… everything.
Things have changed. You need space, and you need to make sure that airflow is managed. Crowded communal spaces are out. Giving each other proper distance is in.
We can help! We have all the infrastructure supplies you need to make sure that your employees can work safely. We can help with network wiring, backbone equipment, and upgraded Wi-Fi so that everyone has the room they need to do the job. Don’t let the plans of the past stop you from keeping people safe in the present.
3. Control your access
Solid Signal can help you keep everyone safe by controlling access. Wall-mounted thermometers can scan each employee in fractions of a second. Automatic locks and gates can make sure that you control access to your building. It’s more than just security now. It’s safety.
Our Business Enterprise Solutions group can help with solutions for any building. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small office or a huge stadium or anything in between. We can take care of you, the way you deserve to be taken care of.
4. Hotspots for your home-based workers
We’ve all been putting a lot of stress on our home-based internet for the last 15 months. For the most part, it’s held up pretty well. But, we’ve also been pretty forgiving when it comes to what we expect out of our technology.
If you have an employee who plans on working from home for the foreseeable future, make sure they have the resources they need. That starts with good internet. If the home internet isn’t up to the challenge, it’s time for a hotspot.
Hotspots take cell service and turn it into usable Wi-Fi for all your devices. Whether you need internet for one device or for a whole home, we can help you with hotspots and cellular routers designed to keep your employees productive.
If the cell signal in the house isn’t that good, your WFH peeps will also need a cellular signal booster. Cell boosters take signal from outside and amplify it inside. That means an end to missed calls and slow data. Every home should have one, and especially if it’s also a home office.
The experts at Solid Signal can help you choose the right hotspot and booster for you from our huge selection. It’s worth taking a little time and reviewing your options.
