The importance of connectivity in a hybrid working environment

By Denise De Albuquerque 12-14-2021

 

In an increasingly digital world, it is more important than ever to have a reliable internet connection, especially during a time where more and more businesses are already embracing a new model of working and productivity that involves people working from different places around the world.

What is a hybrid model of working?

Hybrid models of working are already gaining prominence even before the pandemic, and as businesses start to recover from this crisis, this approach is likely to become the new norm. In this model, employees work onsite and remotely, which requires the use of various devices, including laptops and tablets. These devices need to be connected to the company's network for employees to do their jobs effectively.

How does connectivity affect the success of this new model of working?

Choosing the right network technology is critical because the success of hybrid working will largely depend on reliable, fast, and secured network connectivity. However, the availability of the internet varies depending on where you and your team are located in the world. For instance, many developing countries do not offer consistent broadband service, while some countries block certain websites altogether. Fortunately, there are ways around this issue by using a virtual private network (VPN). VPNs create secure connections to make it seem like your device is located in another country, therefore bypassing any restrictions imposed by local governments or ISPs.

Why you should invest in better wireless connections and internet access points?

It is no secret that the business world is becoming increasingly reliant on internet access and wireless connections. This means that in order to keep up with this demand, companies need to invest in better network equipment and network systems for their global workspace.

A common connectivity issue is slow speeds due to bandwidth limitations on a current network system. To maintain an optimal speed for your business, upgrading your router or adding another access point can increase your signal strength and improve the overall performance of your network system. This will also build a better relationship with your team members as improved connectivity can resolve the most common complaint from hybrid working employees— it's that their wireless connection isn't strong or fast enough for them to complete tasks without interruption. And so, investing in a better network system for your workplace also presents opportunities for increased productivity.

Many benefits come from having a stable connection; however, as many business owners and managers know all too well, maintaining a reliable internet connection can be challenging.
