We are aware of the challenges associated with overseeing a global supply chain and our global staff actively manages and oversees our suppliers and vendors to ensure that our corporate responsibility standards are upheld. That’s why we clearly outline our business ethics to all of our work family and hold each member accountable for complying with our policies against child labor, human trafficking, slavery, inhumane treatment and discrimination.

At Sonim, we invest in our employees – both domestically and abroad. We provide living wages for our employees in India and China, while offering clean, affordable and accessible housing that we run and maintain. We provide office space, which is well maintained, and a safe environment for our employees to work. We also provide safety and ethics training so that our family abroad remains safe while helping to maintain smooth operation of our foreign plants. The OHS certificate of registration for occupational health and safety is available here.
When we designed and launched our first ruggedized handsets in 2011, our industry counterparts had decades of experience to rely on when refining best practices and lessons learned in ethical operations. To the extent possible, we strive to work with our colleagues to develop standard operating procedures and leverage best practices in an effort to improve the safety of our workplace and increase our supply chain efficiencies.
At our home office in Austin, TX, we offer a variety of employee benefits, including full medical dental and vision benefits; in fact, we cover 95% of health insurance premiums for all of our US-based employees. Additionally, our employees receive short-term & long-term disability coverage, life insurance and AD&D, healthcare and dependent care flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts. We also offer a flexible time off policy and paid sick leave for employees.
Sonim has a rich history of giving back to our community. Our employees have a flexible time off policy
and we always encourage employees to use some of their time off to volunteer for local charities, food pantries
and help those in need.
We’re also deeply honored to help serve a key demographic – public safety professionals – who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. Throughout the years, Sonim has partnered with public safety departments to offer handsets to agencies at no charge who are in charge of large crowd control operations.
