“This is a culture based on values. I worked with Bell as a vendor for several years before joining the company. Before I ever saw a list of Bell’s core values, I could feel them every time I walked into a room of their people. That’s how you know the culture is strong, and it’s the reason I am so proud to be part of this team. It’s simply about doing the right thing every time.”
