“we […] found sourcing and purchasing the right phones and SIMs really easy”
We have previously managed by providing employees with a monthly data allowance as they used their own personal phones. This seemed like a reasonable solution. Clients could get hold of someone and we reimbursed staff for any data used, which was reviewed regularly.
However, we felt like there must be a better solution, as people were receiving calls from clients on their annual leave, or even late at night. Couple that with having to install access to email and other business related apps, they could not switch off their phones. This had to change.
“being a certified B Corp, sourcing a sustainable supply chain was important to us”
We set about searching for a suitable mobile phone provider and being a Certified B Corp, sourcing a sustainable supply chain was important to us. We came across Honest mobile and found sourcing and purchasing the right phones and SIMs really easy.
We initially purchased five mobile phones (Fairphone 3) and SIM cards, which arrived really quickly and were set up easily by our employees. Since then, we have purchased two more as we continue to grow.
We know what we are paying each month and have access to support should something unexpected happen.
Our employees now have a dedicated mobile. They can separate work from home and can switch off without worry, setting up voicemail options when they are relaxing at home in the evening or on that well deserved holiday.
“our employees […] can separate work from home and can switch off without worry”
It’s that peace of mind to our employees, clients and our company in relation to receiving excellent customer service and sustainability in our supply chain that validates our switch to Honest Mobile.
I would wholeheartedly recommend you discuss your business needs with them and look forward to peace of mind that you’ve made the right choice for both people and the planet.
