At BT, our ambition is to be the world’s most trusted connector of people, devices and machines. by leading the way to a bright and sustainable future. Underpinning this ambition is our Digital Skills & Sustainability strategy which is our promise to lead the way in creating a bright and sustainable future for everyone we connect with.
We are delivering on this strategy by focusing on three main areas:
- Improving lives through educational opportunities
- Championing human and digital rights
- Tackling climate change and environmental challenges
- Supporting good causes through investment, fundraising and volunteering
We’re committed to doing business ethically and responsibly – in a way that respects our customers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders.
We live in a digital society, so to build the skilled workforce of tomorrow, we believe that it’s vital for our young people to understand the importance of critical subjects like Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). At BT, our goal is to get every young person excited about these subjects by taking them out of the classroom and offering them a platform to create and explore their own ideas.
At BT we know that it's crucial to reflect the diversity of our customers from around the world. And we know that having people from all walks of life makes us a more creative and innovative company.
That variety of experience, culture and background allows our teams to truly use the power of communication to make a better world, giving everyone products and services that actually make a difference in their lives.
We make sure we do whatever we can to support our people too: making them feel valued and included and unlocking their potential is essential. We're incredibly proud that we've featured again in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women, for the third year running.
