For the first time ever, TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) has received a top score of 100 for the Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion on the Disability Equality Index (DEI).
“TDS continues to raise awareness of how diversity impacts our culture, so it’s an honor for TDS to be named one of the Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion,” said TDS’ Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Partner Mindy Begenat. “TDS and the Achieving a Better Life/Work Environment (ABLE) Associate Resource Group are continuously working to make sure that people with disabilities are represented and heard at all levels of our company.”
In the last year, TDS associates raised awareness about mental wellness and health and encouraged associates to learn more about different interview styles of people on the autism spectrum, and about associates who are living with invisible disabilities. A team of TDS associates also organized a press conference to educate the public on the new 3-digit 988 hotline that routes callers to the new national Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.
