Rianna used to start her mornings with school drop-off and a long commute, now she starts her day with affirmations and yoga, and walks her kids to school. Thanks to the TELUS Work Styles program, Rianna says: “Since I’m not travelling 1.5 hours to get to work every day, I’m far more productive and efficient - but most of all, I’m feeling 100% better mentally and physically. I’m 25 years into my career and this is the best decision I’ve ever made for my wellness, family and quality of life.”

Technology and innovation at TELUS
When you hear the word 'TELUS', you probably think of a telco. But we’re so much more than that. We’re at the forefront of digital healthcare and connected agriculture, using technology to make our customers’ and communities’ lives better. From the latest advances in 5G and the Internet of Things to automation and cloud technology, we’re constantly innovating, asking questions and challenging ourselves to solve real-world problems.

Team member-led resource groups
Our 6 resource groups play a vital role in recognizing diversity and advancing inclusion at TELUS. They support, and are led by, team members who identify as women, Indigenous, individuals of varying abilities, newcomers to Canada, Black and LGBTQ2+. Through these groups, we aim to foster an environment where everyone feels safe to be their true selves.
TELUS Days of Giving
Since 2006, our TELUS team has been giving back to their communities in our annual TELUS Days of Giving (TDOG) month-long volunteer event. Each year, this adds up to 130,000 volunteers in 26 countries volunteering 1.3 million hours. As the most giving company in the world, we also donate 5% of our pre-tax profits, which amounted to $90M in 2021.
