Human capital Moving the world forward together
Our V Team works together with purpose—and a passion for excellence. Together, we’re moving the world forward. Every day, our 135,000-strong V Team works to provide trusted and useful solutions while building a culture that is inclusive and rewarding for everyone, helping make Verizon a company that so many are proud to serve.
Verizon is committed to a workplace free from unlawful discrimination and harassment and will not tolerate discriminatory or harassing behavior of any kind. Our zero-tolerance policy applies to any conduct that has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Any employee who believes they have been the subject of, or is aware of, discrimination, harassment or retaliation can report this in a number of ways—to their supervisor, to the local human resources department or to the VZ Compliance Guideline.
All complaints are handled in a confidential manner, and information is only shared on a need-to-know basis. All complaints are investigated, and any acts of discrimination, harassment or retaliation are addressed and remedied with appropriate corrective action, up to and including termination of employment. In addition, Verizon prohibits any form of retaliation against employees who file these types of complaints, and committing an act of retaliation alone can be cause for appropriate corrective action, including termination of employment.
All Verizon employees are expected to participate in civil treatment training intended to reinforce the company’s commitment to a diverse, hospitable work environment. Furthermore, all employees at Verizon are expected to participate in unconscious bias training to further foster a work environment of fairness and sensitivity.
Informed by the International Labor Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, as well as the United Nations Global Compact, we respect our employees’ rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining in compliance with applicable law, including the right to join or not join worker organizations (labor unions).
Verizon administers a quarterly “Pulse” survey to all employees to gauge satisfaction and engagement across the company. Anonymized, aggregated results are shared by department and for Verizon, as a whole.
