Sprint strives for a culture of inclusion that attracts, develops and retains a diverse workforce.
Our employees’ unique experiences and backgrounds are essential to meeting and exceeding our company goals. Because we are representative of the diverse markets we serve, we’re better at understaning and serving their needs.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) reflect our commitment to the growth and professional development of all employees. Sprint ERGs are voluntary groups of like-minded employees dedicated to using their collective knowledge and experience to advance themselves, our communities and our company.
ERGs support our core business initiatives by providing cultural expertise and insight into the attitudes and thoughts of our diverse customer base. Examples include writing customer thank-you notes in Spanish, translation support for marketing materials in Spanish and Japanese, and supporting HR recruiting initiatives for military personnel transitioning back into the civilian workplace.
Each ERG is led by a team of employee officers (i.e., president, vice president, operations officer and regional officer). The ERG Officer Program, a two-year development course, provides curriculum, professional development, mentoring and feedback with executive-level sponsors to further develop the officers' leadership skills and increase our company’s talent pipeline.
Sprint currently has seven ERGs with approximately 6,000 members nationwide.

ERG cultural recognition
Workplace culture is driven in large part by the unique values and practices individual employees or groups of employees bring to their work environment. Sprint ERGs recognize and celebrate these differences through relevant cultural events throughout the year. Each ERG provides information about specific cultural events or activities and a lesson about the importance of inclusion in both our professional and personal environments.
Events and activities led by Sprint ERGs include honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., Black History Month, Asian Lunar New Year, Women’s Health Month, Women’s History Month, Cinco de Mayo, National Coming Out Day, Asian Heritage Month, Juneteenth, Gay Pride Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Veterans Day, Disability Awareness Month and collecting care packages for troops.
