At Verizon, we believe the V Team is our greatest asset.
Building the best network isn’t just about wireless signals, fiber, cell towers, connected devices, or next-level experiences. It’s about the collective commitment of a group of people working together towards a common goal — to move the world forward.
To deliver on that purpose requires unlocking the full potential of the V Team. Our Human Capital Report reflects how we attract and develop exceptional talent and help them to realize their greatest ambitions. Because an investment in our people is an investment in Verizon, and we are just getting started.
“It takes more than the
best technology to power
the future and
connect the world
– it takes the best people –
our V team.”
Christy Pambianchi, Executive Vice President
and Chief Human Resources Officer
While the arrival of a new decade typically brings a sense of renewal and hope, we faced what felt like never-ending waves of crises with the continued devastation of COVID-19, systemic racial and social injustice, and the deepening impact of climate change. It’s fair to say the world we’re in today looks very different than it did a year ago.
Through it all, we proved that it takes more than the best technology to move the world forward. It takes the best people—our V Team.
We are at the forefront of an industry that has kept communities connected during the greatest challenges of our time, and our networks will be instrumental in moving society forward. By its very nature, the word “network” conveys unity and togetherness. Over the past year, we have seen students learn and socialize in virtual classrooms; parents introduce their newborns over video; nurses text their loved ones after a long shift; couples exchange wedding vows with friends bearing witness on phones. These moments of connectivity were made possible by the 133,000+ Verizon team members around the world.
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that our employees are our greatest asset. They’re a force for growth and a force for good through their decency, dedication, diversity and heightened sense of humanity.
As one of the world’s leading information and communications technology companies, we create the networks that move the world forward. To deliver on that purpose requires unlocking the full potential of our people and fostering a workplace culture that breeds ingenuity and visionary thinking.
While this is our first Human Capital Report, many of our commitments have existed for some time. From this report, you will have a deeper gauge of our strategic workforce plans and how we will continue to care and support our V Teamers. We draw strength from our employees, and their V Team pride fuels us forward.
I am proud of where we are today, but even more excited about what’s to come because we always move #ForwardTogether.
Our Employee Value Proposition
Be part of the network of people who move the world forward.
Our greatest strength is you.
Moving the world forward takes more than the best technology, it takes the best people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. When all different people move together, the world shifts.
Our people learn and grow at the speed of technology.
A culture of learning keeps our people at the forefront of an ever-changing industry. The full potential of every person makes the whole network, and all those who touch it, better. Change is a constant. Our people make sure it’s for the better.
Every employee has an opportunity and a responsibility to drive meaningful change—in their career, in their community and in the world at large.
We are dreamers, doers and status quo defiers.
Our network is big enough to have space for wherever your story takes you, and personal enough to help you grow into it. The pursuit of your ambitions shapes the company and everything else around you. If others say it can’t be done, do it here.
