Reword the Credo
1. Change firing policies
One large issue will not break you
Verizon’s performance-oriented work, diverse employees, and hybrid formal organization operate cohesively with the company’s strategy
T-Mobile’s inclusive culture, dedicated employees, and fulfilling tasks allow the company to grow rapidly
But How Do They Match Up?
Verizon > T-Mobile
T-Mobile > Verizon
Quote from Dennis Strigl, former CEO of Verizon:
When results are achieved, pride builds
. When pride builds, so does confidence. With confidence comes the desire to do even better. Trust and loyalty then grows.
Good managers, therefore, drive results
T-Mobile has cultivated an award-winning culture based on ethics, teamwork, and dedication
T-Mobile’s cultural focus:
Ability to experience
stronger than before
Rapidly declining customer base one year ago...
But has yielded an increase of
people in the last two quarters
Their staff believes in T-Mobile and identifies with its mission
Creating opportunities to make a difference
Not becoming “lost” in the corporate world
Verizon lacks a genuine culture
T-Mobile has a disconnect between upper-management and lower-level employees
Culture and communication channels are important in wireless industry
Overall cohesion of congruence model generally leads to success
1. Adhere to psychological contract
due to retail nature of the industry
2. Monthly meetings between
upper-management and lower-level employees
Avoid inconsistency between
expectations and reality
Establish a family-oriented psychological
contract to compliment their inclusive culture
Communication channels lead to increased employee motivation.
A strong culture is necessary in the wireless industry to unite thousands of stores and offices under common norms.
Verizon is still Number One
Strategic formal organization:
Divisional structure to match consumer demographics
more open communications
