Mission: To use the power of communications to make a better world. Vision: To be the team to deliver a brand new 4G network for Britain’s Emergency Services.
TEACHING OAP'S HOW to take a selfie might not sound like a typical day at work, but EE does things a little differently. Each year the telecommunications provider’s 486 stores nationwide hold a Techy Tea Party, an initiative set up in conjunction with Age UK to help older people get up to speed with new technology.
Chief executive Marc Allera presides over an operation that helps its 13,380 employees with registration fees and set-up costs for charitable endeavours; it also matches 25% of the funds raised. Staff say EE actively encourages such support of good causes (86% positive), and the business helped them last year to deliver £192,700 in donations, primarily to Unicef (which ranks among our top-20 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For this year).
Its people believe that EE has a strong social conscience (78%). This extends to its sustainability policies. In the past six years, the business has reduced carbon emissions by 30% and the amount of waste going to landfill by 50%. Staff think it cares about the environment (74%, ninth).
Employees like the way managers treat them as individuals (81%) and show their appreciation for a job well done (81%). They welcome the perks, too. Everyone receives a 75% discount on personal phone plans as well as 30% off on the firm’s 4G wi-fi offering to pass on to five family members or friends each year.
The business was formed by the merger of T-Mobile and Orange in 2010, then acquired by BT last year in a deal worth £12.5bn. Although it has moved to new headquarters in London, it will continue to use the EE brand, which originally stood for “everything, everywhere”.
