Knoxville News Sentinel Names UScellular a Winner of the Greater Knoxville Area Top Workplaces 2021 Award

For the fourth time, UScellular has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by Knoxville Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces recognition signifies the important contributions and passion of our associates that creates the incredible work environment we have at UScellular,” said Deirdre Drake, executive vice president and chief people officer at UScellular. “I want to thank all of our nearly 450 associates in East Tennessee for their hard work and dedication during this past year, especially our retail store and network teams who have continued to work in-person. They kept our customers connected and provided an exceptional customer experience.”

"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business." To date in 2021, UScellular has also been named to the Forbes List of Best Employers for Diversity 2021 and earned top marks in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index.
