T-Mobile once again named as one of the world’s most ethical companies


T-Mobile is kicking off its week with an award win.

T-Mobile has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute. This is the ninth year in a row that T-Mo has won this award.

The evaluation process for the award sees Ethisphere examine a company’s performance in five categories to determine its ethics level. The biggest piece of a company’s Ethics Quotient score is its Ethics and Compliance Program, which is 35 percent of a score and measures program oversight and tone at the top, training and communication, enforcement and discipline, and more.

Other categories that factor into the Ethics Quotient score include Corporate Citizenship and Responsibility, which is 20 percent of an EQ rating. This category includes corporate philanthropy and workplace impact and well-being. Rounding out the categories that factor into an EQ score are Culture of Ethics, which is 20 percent of score and includes the efforts to establish an ethical tone within a company; Governance, which is 15 percent of an EQ score and measures the quality of systems to ensure risk management; and Leadership, Innovation, and Reputation, which is 10 percent of an EQ score and measures the legal compliance and ethical track record of a company along with its ethical reputation among employees and customers.

Here’s T-Mobile CEO John Legere’s statement on this World’s Most Ethical Company award win:

“The change we’re driving in this industry would not be possible without our talented people and their full-on commitment to doing right by our customers. I’m incredibly proud that T-Mobile is – once again – recognized for our continuing commitment to doing things the right way.”

The overall Ethisphere list of World’s Most Ethical Companies includes 124 winners from around the world. Some of the other winners include names like 3M Company, Dell, Ford, Microsoft, Pepsi, Starbucks, and U.S. Bank.

    I had 2 interviews with T-Mobile 1 month ago and I still haven’t heard back from a single person. Kinda sucks.

    • Angel Nieves

      I’m sorry that you didn’t get the job. :-(

    • Acdc1a

      If you are having to wait for them it means you didn’t get the job. You need to be pro-active. Get a business card from every person you interact with, even a receptionist. If you want the job, follow up with the decision maker and if you can’t get them to return your calls use the other contacts.

    • Bklynman

      Wow you had 2 interviews? that impression(not being funny)since most companies
      now only take resumes online,most people never even get a call for one. I would try again/and or try the other carriers. Good luck.

    • mikeZo6

      Had 4 interviews with them, 20 years experience, they only hire young people with no experience so they can turn them into puppets, most of the reps have no clue about phones. Keep trying

      Why? They mean they treat their employees right or treat customers right?

  • Angel Nieves

    Congratulations to T-Mobile on this award. Some people have spoken negative about working at T-Mobile and I’m glad that an independent agency has reviewed them and recognize their ethics and conditions. You can’t take always things people say at face value, an employee can be let go for poor performance and speak bad about the company.

  • samsung freud

    Did they get any points in the “slamming” category?

  • kev2684

    But will this fix my billing issue I’ve been having for 3 months now or nah?

    I had no idea forcing employees to lie about adding insurance in stores was ethical

  • Zawadi Zawadi

    Same here, T-Mo employees are very lacked about insurance on devices. You inquire and they seem to forget about it.

    • Zawadi Zawadi

      Well phone companies are at war and it is to consumers advantage. 5G, unlimited!

    Ethical? Don’t know how ethical they are when I went in on the 9th to get the “free” iphone and was told by rep in store that sale ended on the 8th. When I inquired about why sign was still outside store offering “free” iphone, was then told that they didn’t have a chance to move it back in yet. Made a stink about it and was told that they’re not offering it and to take it up with corporate.

  • Dylan Wentworth

    That’s very impressive for such a prestigious award from such a well known, well respected organization such as the Ethisphere Institute. I also won an award for being the smartest, sexiest and funniest man in the world, 2nd year in a row from the Dylanosphere Institute so I know how much hard work it takes.

  • Lenore Jenkins

    T mobile should not receive any reward. They decided not to give me the bonus for switching
    All because one of their employees changed my phone number. While I never asked him to do it.

  • James Wagner

    T Mobile is truly by far the most ethical company in the cell phone business, our CEO is a MAN that says what he means and means what he says.this is a very refreshing quality in leadership in today’s Marketplace keep up the good work and keep pushing the envelope.. I understand gaining market shares but with more & more of the market share comes a greater demand on towers and slows speeds down to 2g very disappointing when you have a phone with that’s fast and slow Internet, I know thats a major concern and it’s being worked on every day I have total faith this issue will be fix and T Mobile will be the best cell sevice in the world. .

    I got paid 104000 dollars in last 12 months by freelancing online a­n­d I did that by w­orking part-time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more hours a day. I followed a money making model I was introduced by this web-site i found on-line and I am amazed that i earned so much money. It’s so user-friendly a­n­d I am just so thankful that I found out about this. Here is what i did… http://www.wzurl­.­me/tEXzrw

    This is bs. They are still throttling youtube. I used to root and be on Tmobile’s side but they are full of sh*t. When streaming youtube over their network it struggles to stream 720p. Most of the time it stalls because they are freaking throttling youtube and trying to force you to go to a lower resolution when I thought the new ONE plan included HD streaming. Mind you my data speeds are 70mpbs or higher 24/7 at my home. Bunch of liars and crooks. Going back to Verizon. Verizon may steal your money but they don’t do shady tactics like this.

    I’ve made 104,000 bucks previous year by doing an on-line job from my house a­­n­­d I was able to do it by work­ing part-time f­o­r 3+ hours /daily. I followed a money making model I was introduced by this web-site i found online and I am happy that i earned such great money. It’s so newbie friendly a­­n­­d I am just so happy that i found it.

  • Chief executive officer of Google!, is informing users to start off “Work at home” practice, that Marketers have been doing for about one year now. This year alone, I generated close to $36k presently with nothing but my desktop and some extra time, however i have a regular nine to 5 job. Even people not used to this, actually make $50/per h successfully and the income might be much higher in the long run… This is how i started >> http://ru­.­vu/b7BmR
