Consolidated Communications Wins Award for its COVID-19 Response

Top-10 U.S. fiber provider, Consolidated Communications was recognized this week with a Silver Stevie® Award for its swift and effective COVID-19 Employee Response Plan to keep its employees safe. With more than 700 nominations in this category, the Consolidated Communications team was honored for its efforts to transition 90% of its 3,400 employees across 23 states to a work at home environment. No small feat. For most companies this year, the pandemic has presented numerous challenges, one of which is having to make the transition from employees working in offices to working out of their home environments. As noted by a Stevie Award judge, “Consolidated supported employees working remotely, measured and managed employee cases to reduce risk and established an innovative grass roots program. A great effort by an employer during the pandemic. Truly amazing.”

Leveraging an advanced fiber network spanning 45,850 fiber route miles, Consolidated serves consumers, businesses, and wireless and wireline carriers across rural and metro communities and a 23-state service area. 

“The health and safety of our employees is Consolidated’s top priority and our leaders swiftly created and implemented a comprehensive plan to protect our teams and ensure business continuity. We’re a critical service provider and I’m proud of the way our employees powered through adversity to effectively take care of customers while keeping themselves and co-workers safe.” – Bob Udell, president and CEO of Consolidated Communications
