The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered the biggest global working experiment and may inadvertently cause the biggest reform to the way companies do business in the foreseeable future.
The pandemic has forced businesses globally to adopt remote working practices to maintain business continuity. With little time to prepare, businesses had to ensure that their systems and processes were agile enough to support this unexpected change.
But some would argue that this reform has been a long time coming. The UK Office of National Statistics reported that remote working has increased by 12.5% over the last decade. Employee retention rates and staff morale among those remote working employees increased significantly and 70% of employees stated that flexibly working made new positions more attractive to them. Businesses who support remote working said that they incurred cost savings by keeping smaller office space and that they were able to recruit from a wider talent pool.
The requirements for a home office are quite simple; employees only need a computer with a stable and secure internet connection and decent mobile signal coverage.
90% of all homes in the UK are connected to internet services through broadband. Whilst broadband is readily available, mobile phone coverage proves to tougher problem to solve. An article by MobileNews claims that 40% of UK customers struggle with mobile reception in their homes.
A mobile signal booster will solve these mobile coverage issues. Cel-Fi is the only OFCOM approved licence exempt mobile signal booster in the UK and offer a range of products to combat poor in-door mobile signal issues.
