Careers and the disABLED Top 50 Employer list

At Verizon, we believe in the power of technology to solve just about anything. Whether it’s the customers who buy our products and services, the people who live in the communities where we do business or the employees who work for us, our technology is transforming and bettering the lives of people across the globe.

Recently, that impact on the disabled community was recognized by the readers of Careers and the disABLED Magazine, as Verizon was honored by being named to the publication’s Top 50 Employer list. The list is compiled by asking Careers and the disABLED readers to answer one of two simple questions:

  • Which companies would you most like to work for?
  • Who do you believe provides a positive working environment for people with disabilities?

The relationship between Verizon and its employees with disabilities is mutually beneficial. As a company with one of the most diverse customer bases in the world, we need an equally inclusive and diverse workforce in order to satisfy every customer’s needs

For example, Verizon’s employees who are deaf or hard-of-hearing have played an instrumental role in developing our special customer service for deaf or hard-of-hearing customers who communicate using American Sign Language. And as a company with so many different career opportunities, other employees with disabilities have found new ways to put their technical expertise to use in serving our customers.

It’s equally important that our employees with disabilities be able to communicate with their fellow coworkers, in addition to our customers.  Verizon technology has made that possible through the continued deployment of specialized computers that help employees with visual and hearing disabilities

With technology rapidly changing everywhere around us, Verizon is in the middle of one of the most exciting times in its history. We believe everyone should be able to be a part of this dramatic transformation.
