Abstract

Eradicating disparities in health care is an ongoing process that must continue through actions from a variety of stakeholders, including employers. Verizon Communications has a diverse workforce of more than 200,000 employees and is committed to attracting and retaining a workforce that mirrors its customers, speaks their languages, and understands their needs. The company developed and implemented a comprehensive plan to help ensure that minority employees and their families receive the health care they need and deserve based on the Institute of Medicine's 2003 report Unequal Treatment.
