End of phones on desks?
06 August 2018
Big 4 firm PwC has ‘hung up’ on landlines at its UK office desks.
From the end of the summer all staff will be expected to use their company mobile.
The firm, with 24 offices and 18,000 staff, said that the switch to mobiles would be more efficient’.
Just a few landlines will remain for ‘security reasons’. There will be some lines in rooms used for client meetings and at reception. PwC said” “With landline usage falling rapidly, we believe that amore mobile-focused policy is a more efficient way of working.”
Fellow Big 4 firm KPMG recently ditched landlines in its Canadian offices and at its Australian HQ.
