It is the policy of Sandhill Telephone Cooperative, Inc. to provide equal opportunities for all employees in employment, training, promotion and assignment, and job security without discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or physical/mental handicap.
The goal of Sandhill Telephone Cooperative, Inc. is to make equal employment opportunity a way of life in the communications industry and to give each employee every opportunity to be represented appropriately in all segments of the work force.
As General Manager, it is my intent to carry out all of the provisions of the equal opportunity program contained in Executive Order 11478 and EEO Act of 1972, not only in the letter of the law but also in the spirit of the order. The objective of these acts is to improve the relationship of employee to employee, supervisor to worker and labor to management, which will create a oneness in which each employee will share equally in the opportunity of advancement, self-improvement and utilization of talent, according to each individual’s capacity. Each of us has not only a legal but a moral obligation to comply with the doctrine of equality to ensure that each person at Sandhill has an equal opportunity to all facets of the operation, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, or physical/mental handicap. We must be receptive to the fact that we are giving equal opportunity priority, and we will not tolerate insensitivity in this area.
