Everyone knows AT&T. If you’re reading this and you’re in the US, there’s a good chance you’re viewing this on an AT&T network. Because of their sheer size and coverage, it’s actually challenging to go out of AT&T’s range of service. What most people don’t know about the telecommunications giant is how it planted some of the first seeds of supplier diversity. Regardless of your views on their services, the fact that they pioneered supplier diversity programs makes them a champion in the industry.
In this episode, we describe why we see AT&T as the gold standard for supplier diversity efforts. We explain the difference between a company’s mission and vision and how they relate to each other. We discuss how companies can inspire younger workers to stay. We also share the importance of interacting with customers as if you’re being recorded.
"AT&T is one of the gold standard companies in the world. In supplier diversity, AT&T was the first corporate to step forward and say 'This is an initiative of ours.'" - Adam Moore
