Everything we do is geared toward helping people. We focus our energies on helping our employees and our millions of customers, viewers, and audiences learn, grow, and realize their potential. This impulse is more than a value, and greater than a principle. It is a daily measure of our success. Seizing the countless opportunities, Comcast and NBCUniversal bring out the best in people to move our business forward. It creates a vibrant workplace and spurs innovation. It empowers individuals and strengthens communities. Above all, it is core to how we make a real and lasting difference.
Our commitment begins with our employees, nearly 130,000 strong. We support them with an array of benefits and programs that cultivate physical and mental health, encourage personal development, honor families, and contribute to their financial security. Our aim is to provide a workplace that fosters excellence, both individually and collectively, while opening doors to experiences that enrich our employees’ lives.
We believe promoting an environment that champions a wide range of backgrounds, views, and choices is essential to helping our people — and our companies — thrive. Having a diverse workforce challenges us to widen our perspective and compels us to evolve. Bringing together people from all walks of life deepens insight and fuels innovation. And making diversity a cornerstone of our business shapes how we collaborate and engage with others.
This point is particularly important, given that our customers and audiences span the United States and beyond. Our passion is creating and delivering exceptional content through a spectrum of media and technology. Fulfilling that passion requires understanding who we’re reaching out to and what is most important to them — and why.
It’s not enough to have the platforms and channels to deliver content to hundreds of millions of people. We must reach them with information, entertainment, and ideas that are meaningful and relevant, expressed in ways that resonate as authentic and true. As a result, we invest in networks and create programming that elevates crucial but overlooked issues to the mainstream. We believe that giving marginalized voices forums to be heard and providing under-represented groups opportunities for expression are powerful ways to advance positive change.
Helping others thrive is vital to our strategy — and woven throughout our business. Just as nurturing the success of our employees strengthens Comcast and NBCUniversal, providing diverse content advances our larger mission of entertaining, educating, and inspiring the millions of individuals we reach every day.
