Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Business / Cell Phone Usage and Reimbursement Plans
Posted:  05 Feb 2016 18:39
We are working to implement some policy regarding cell phones and hope to get some ideas for the MAPP members of past experience about what has worked and what hasn't.

What are the lessons learned of a 'bring your own device' policy?

What kinds of compensation are provided?  Some kind of tiered scale all the way to a phone provided by the company?

What are some ideas about how to define what level of employee falls in to which tier of a compensation plan?

Just looking for some ideas.  I know each company has to develop a plan that suits their business.  These phones and tablets are a necessary evil of business these days.  We want to make sure we have safe and fair policy in place to protect our employees and the company!  Thanks!

We reimburse or pay for phones monthly for those roles that meet a strict criteria making it vital to operations.

We do an annual reimbursement based upon your role in the organization. We then prorate for role changes or hires into the organization.  It is a pretty strict criteria. Please feel free to contact me if you need more information.
