Unifi Connects Employees to T-Mobile 5G Network

2021 saw more than 47 million Americans voluntarily leave their jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many of them sought more purpose and value within their jobs. This placed a burden on employers across all industries to implement strategies to help them retain their employees and attract talented new hires amid the Great Resignation.

Aviation services provider Unifi looked to implement a modern benefits program to help meet employees’ needs and improve their lives. The company selected T-Mobile and Hyperion for a managed mobility program.

Through the program, Unifi’s 23,000 team members and employees at 11 locations will receive a free Unifi-sponsored personal 5G smartphone with access to T-Mobile’s 5G network. Not only does it provide a valuable benefit to employees, but it also makes it easier for IT to manage mobile devices through the corporate-sponsored program.  It also ensures workers can communicate and collaborate remotely using their 5G devices and network access.

“Our team is constantly innovating to find attractive benefits for our employees,” said Gautam Thakkar, Unifi’s CEO. “Teaming up with T-Mobile and Hyperion on a program to provide personal smartphones to our employees at no cost to them is an excellent opportunity for us to attract and retain the industry’s best employees and supports our commitment to our team members.”

Eligible employees who can participate include new hires after 30 days of employment and existing employees. Current employees with more than 12 months of service are eligible for upgrades to the newest model of phone.

“We’re excited to collaborate with industry leaders, Unifi and T-Mobile, to spearhead this forward-thinking Managed Mobility solution designed to improve front-line employee satisfaction, attract and retain top talent and increase qualified applicants,” Hyperion Chief Revenue Officer John Harris said.

This is among one of the first large-scale deployments of the Hyperion Managed Mobility program, and it raised the bar for employers looking to deploy a benefits program to keep employees satisfied and valued. Unifi looks to eventually expand the program beyond the initial 11 locations.
