mobco was founded in 2010 with the purpose of empowering the world to work securely from anywhere. Since organisations first began using smartphones and tablets, we’ve been enabling employees to work productively and securely on any device without compromising security, privacy, or user experience. We are independent and agnostic, helping our clients maximise the business benefits of the devices, applications, and data they use, regardless of platforms, form factors, operating systems and carriers. We use our technical and service expertise to design, deploy and manage a range of solutions from industry-leading software partners, alongside our own proprietary Digital Employee Experience platform (Workplace).
From our offices in Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, the CWSI Group (incorporating BLAUD and mobco) is trusted to provide security, compliance, and mobility solutions to some of Europe’s most respected organisations in both the public and private sector, either directly or through our channel partnerships.
Our purpose is to “Enable the world to work securely from anywhere”.

We seek to provide a safe, secure and inclusive environment that protects people and promotes their wellbeing, and we strive to have robust systems in place, enabling compliance, commerciality and efficiency aligned to our values of Customer First, Excellence, Respect and Be Bold.
Leadership & Accountability
As an organisation, we recognise the importance of accountability. At mobco, we will maintain transparency regarding ESG issues by making reporting available. A senior decision maker will be nominated from the Executive Leadership team to oversee and monitor our Strategy and comment on the implementation of ongoing and new initiatives. A team responsible for implementing ESG objectives will report on progress to the Board of Directors bi-annually.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
We challenge what has traditionally been a male dominated industry by promoting the empowerment of women and providing equal opportunities for leadership. We are committed to achieving greater equality and diversity in the workplace. We will achieve this through policies that empower social inclusion – irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or other status. We will ensure equal pay for work of equal value and operate in full compliance with gender pay reporting requirements.
Our gender stats for 2023 are outlined below:

Listening & Developing
mobco aims to maintain a positive work culture that makes our people proud. We provide our employees with a voice through our people analytics platform wrky and survey our organisation quarterly in order to closely examine, understand and improve our work culture. Our Workforce Engagement Strategy flows from the priorities established by our People Experience team under our strategic pillar of “High Performing Organisation” and measured through regular surveys to strive for continual improvement.
We are committed to fostering sustainability awareness and encouraging a genuine respect for environmental protection in all our people. We achieve this through incorporation of ESG factors into the annual performance targets for all our people.
Ethical and Accountable
Policies and procedures that apply to our people are in place to ensure high standards of ethical and accountable conduct. This includes a zero-tolerance approach to fraud, bribery and corruption. The Audit & Risk Committee monitors compliance, is independent from management, and has broad powers to investigate activities, obtain independent professional advice and make recommendations to the Board.
Beyond our people
We will integrate sustainability criteria into vendor assessment and supply chain processes. At mobco, we expect our suppliers, partners and customers to recognise and commit to similar principles of corporate responsibility. Our Procurement Policy is aligned to the requirements under the Modern Slavery Act 2018, which promotes the provision of safe, fair and equitable work conditions for employees and suppliers.
We build relationships with our local communities and consider our impact on the local community. We have nominated a number of preferred charity partners in each of our territories. We have a group wide volunteering policy for employees to enable time off to support charities of their choice. We also have a process for employees to request monetary sponsorship for local clubs or charities.
We support apprentice programmes in the UK and Ireland and we are looking at broadening these out to BeNeLux regions.
We also participate in return-to-work programmes for females such as Womens ReBoot in Ireland.
