Sprint gets top score on 2017 Disability Equality Index

For three years running, Sprint (NYSE: S) has been recognized by the Disability Equality Index (DEI) as one of the “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” — earning a top score of 100 for its commitment to fostering an inclusive and welcoming work environment for people with disabilities, the company said.

The achievement highlights Sprint´s continued dedication to being inclusive and accessible throughout all aspects of business.

Each year the DEI, a joint initiative between the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN) and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), evaluates whether companies have practices in place to promote equal opportunity employment, embrace diversity, encourage people with disabilities to be themselves and have comprehensive policies in place to assist people with disabilities.

Since the DEI´s inception in 2015, Sprint has been listed among the top ranked companies every year, earning three straight DEI scores of 100 for demonstrating significant business leadership, going beyond compliance activities, and driving business success through disability inclusion policies and practices.

Earning a top DEI score three years running shows Sprint´s continued success in developing a culture of inclusion that celebrates diversity. Employee Resource Groups like REAL DEAL — Resourceful, Empowering, Awareness, Limitless (REAL) for Disabled Employees Accessing Life (DEAL) — recognize and praise the many contributions of people with disabilities, while utilizing their collective experiences and knowledge to make Sprint a better place to work.
