We Focus on Empowering Our People, Improving Our Communities and Sustaining Our Planet.
Our journey began with a bold idea: bring TV to Small Town America. This adventure has
driven us to connect millions of Americans to the TV they love. We now have an exciting
future ahead, bringing our disruptive ingenuity to building a nationwide wireless network
with massive opportunities to profoundly impact local communities and our planet.
DISH is committed to continuously evolving our corporate citizenship efforts as our business evolves. From our team members and retail partners volunteering in their communities to our dedication to sustainable business practices to the support we provide to disaster recovery, youth empowerment and active military personnel and veteran communities, our corporate citizenship program is a pivotal extension of who we are at DISH.
We leverage our technology and talented workforce to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work.
Homes For Our Troops
DISH is a proud supporter of Homes For Our Troops, an organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans. Their program empowers veterans to rebuild their lives by providing them with adapted homes, enabling them to regain their independence. In addition to our financial support, our partnership includes donated TV service, smart home products and OnTech smart home installation services to further customize their homes to meet the everyday needs of veterans and their families.
DISH Cares Ambassador of the Year
We are proud to honor DISH authorized retailer, Today’s Satellite, with our annual DISH Cares Ambassador of the Year Award. The Today’s Satellite team supports the needs of communities across Puerto Rico through hosting classes at Boys & Girls Clubs, providing maintenance at shelters for families experiencing domestic violence and even teaching business classes at local high schools.
Delivering Satellite Internet and TV Programming Services to First Responders
Our teams coordinate our technicians, products and services to ensure first responders have on-the-ground support to set up critical telecommunications infrastructure when leading disaster recovery efforts. In partnership with Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC), DISH has delivered nearly 525,000 hours of broadband and television services to fire stations, survivor shelters, city command centers, volunteer hubs and more since 2015.
We understand our role as stewards of the environment and strive to reduce our footprint across the entire value.
Planting Trees in the Sierra National Forest
In an effort to reduce waste and protect our environment, DISH Cares launched a campaign encouraging our customers to switch from paper to electronic billing. Together with Arbor Day Foundation, we planted over 13,000 trees in the Sierra National Forest.
In addition to diverting nearly 3,000 tons of waste to recycling each year, DISH also refurbishes over 5 million receivers, broadband hardware and accessories annually to ensure we reuse materials whenever possible. Our technicians are equipped with reusable packaging materials, reusable boot covers and digital forms to further minimize our impact on the environment.
Colorado Environmental Leadership Program
The Colorado Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) names DISH as an honored member. The ELP is a statewide recognition and reward program that recognizes companies that go beyond state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement.
We maintain a safe, healthy, and productive workplace, and provide training and development opportunities to ensure all of our employees reach their full potential.
Leadership Education and Development (LEAD)
DISH not only provides programs to help our team members excel in their current roles, but we also give employees the resources to reach beyond their existing responsibilities through promotions, challenging work assignments, exposure to new thinking and technology and opportunities to transfer to new teams. In 2019 alone, DISH provided over 25,000 hours of training through our LEAD training programs.
DISH encourages people on our team to bring their whole selves to work. COLLECTIVE is a platform for our employee-led diversity networks and interest groups that includes our African American Network, Out at DISH, DISH Women’s Network, Adelante, Empowered Parents Network and our Veterans Resource Group. These and other groups empower employees to learn about different backgrounds and support one another in professional and personal growth as we shape the future of TV and wireless – together.
A positive attitude and the ability to sustain high levels of enthusiasm and effort.
A high level of objective intelligence, critical thinking, common sense, and curiosity.
