The mobile network group has announced that for the 8th year in a row, it has been honored as the world’s most ethical company by the Ethisphere Institute.
T-Mobile remains the only US wireless provider to receive the award, with a company spokesperson saying that the group continues to ‘shape future industry standards by creating the gold standard’.
Discussing his win courtesy of the Ethisphere Institute, T-Mobile CEO John Legere said:
“We are dramatically changing an industry and our employees make sure every day that we’re doing it the right way. I’m not surprised — but very proud — that T-Mobile is the only US wireless provider on the list.”
A statement from T-Mobile reacting to the news boasts that the tech group has shaken up the wireless industry, ‘packing in more services’ in the form of music and video streaming apps.
According to figures released by T-Mobile, 33 million customers were on board before it launched its Un-carrier initiatives in 2013. Following the changes, that number rose to 63 million by 2015, a whopping increase.
An explanation of what the Ethisphere Institute’s award stands for over on awards website says: “Our mission is to define and advance the standards of ethical business practices that fuel corporate character, marketplace trust and business success.”
“We have a deep expertise in measuring and defining core ethics standards using data-driven insights that help companies enhance corporate character.”
Other technology groups that made the ethical list of honorees for 2016 include Cisco, Dell and Microsoft.
