A recent survey by Zinwave found that 35% of workers feel that inferior mobile signal contributes to workplace stress, while 74% of respondents said they often or sometimes experienced poor mobile signal at work. 32% had been forced to leave their building to make a call or connect to the Internet.
What’s even more concerning for employers is that 58% of respondents say that their employer or building owner is to blame for the lack of signal, rather than the mobile provider itself. Meanwhile, 26% claimed their productivity was disrupted by poor signal.
So once more of your employees are back in the office, will great mobile signal cause productivity to soar? Or will a bad connection do just the opposite?
If your building suffers from poor signal and you’ve noticed it’s been a problem in the past, with staff having to stand next to windows to make calls or even go outside, now’s the time to do something about it – before workers begin to return.
