Your small business is becoming medium size and the 100+ strong team are complaining about poor WiFi experience while at the office. They report that the WiFi is faster when working from home. Your speedtest results are lagging below 35Mbps* with louder complaints from staff between 1pm and 5pm, caused by internet peak traffic across the country.
Your monthly cost of 100 staff has risen to in excess of $500,000 but your ISP and WiFi investment is a rounding error in comparison. Inefficient WiFi has a direct impact on the value staff leading to a decline in deliverables. Offices with over 60 pax – note that bandwidth is split amongst all people.
Worth noting, a 10X increase in monthly WiFi costs is still a rounding error compared to overall salaries but the investment will dramatically improve your throughput, HR output, team moral, with knock-on effects onto KPIs like retention rate and overall growth.
