ATLANTA, Ga., BELLEVUE, Wash. and LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Sept. 8, 2022 — Unifi, the largest provider of aviation services in North America, has selected America’s 5G leader T-Mobile and industry-leading mobility primary agent Hyperion Partners for a new “Managed Mobility” program that outfits employees with 5G smartphones. Unifi has 23,000 team members, and employees at participating locations will receive a free personal 5G smartphone with access to T-Mobile’s 5G network – the largest, fastest, and most reliable nationwide.
The Managed Mobility program allows new hires and existing employees to receive a Unifi-sponsored personal 5G smartphone with service at no cost to them. Committing to one of the first large-scale deployments of the Hyperion Managed Mobility program, Unifi is raising the bar for top employers who want to implement modern benefits programs that not only meet employees’ needs but also improve their lives.
“Our team is constantly innovating to find attractive benefits for our employees,” commented 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. Unifi is currently launching this program at 11 locations with others to follow.
“Connectivity is more essential today than ever and we applaud companies, like Unifi, that are helping their employees stay connected at work, at home and beyond,” said Callie Field, President, T-Mobile Business Group. “As we welcome thousands of Unifi employees to the T-Mobile for Business family, we can’t wait for them to experience the speed and new capabilities unleashed with America’s largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network.”
“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. “In addition, this opportunity has the potential to bring households without internet access online for the very first time.”
