On the Most Sought-After Amenities: Wi-Fi
Putting Wi-Fi to Work for Your Corporate Office Parks
Tenant expectations are high. They expect top-notch commercial building amenities. What can you offer that your neighboring office parks don’t? What are the amenities that will set your campus apart? As part of our series on the most sought-after amenities, last week we talked about fitness opportunities.
According to Fooda (the mega partner for corporate food service at leading companies like Amazon, GM, Wayfair and Hyatt), the most sought-after corporate amenities for tenants are:
- 2. Reliable, Fast Wi-Fi to keep tenants connected everywhere.
- 3. Easy access to parking and transportation so parking isn’t a headache.
- 4. Dining options so employees don’t have to leave campus.
There’s more to this list, but you’ll need to come back again next week as we delve deeper into these topics. This week, we’re talking...
Fast, Reliable Wi-Fi - EVERYWHERE.
Office buildings need to offer best-in-class internet speeds. If your commercial amenities don’t include Wi-Fi, you’re missing the mark. While every office has Wi-Fi, a strong and reliable connection in every area of your buildings is crucial to retaining tenants, and this even goes beyond your building to outdoor spaces.
Tenants expect their employees to be able to stay connected on their phones and systems when they step outside the office or take a break. Employees cannot work efficiently if the internet is not keeping them connected – particularly when they’re outside of their individual office space. The same goes for cell phone signal strength. Even though some employees still have access to landline phones, many rely on their cell phones to take calls, exchange text messages and send emails. Having spotty cell reception can be frustrating and could impede their business. When it comes time for lease renewals, you could be challenged on this very issue.
