Our people are doing their part to flatten the curve by practicing social distancing and working from home where they can. That said, social distancing does not have to mean social isolation. With technology and a little creativity, we can still stay in touch with our family, friends and coworkers without putting them in harm’s way. Check out how our people are practicing social distancing and staying #ConnectedTogether, whether it’s through an act of kindness for their community or spending time with their coworkers.

Lamar fuels our relief fund

Working from home means less time in the car and less gas money spent on commutes. Lamar may have only joined AT&T a couple of months ago, but he’s already showing how important our values are during these times. He thought of a creative way to transfer his fuel savings to those who need them most.

“Since I’m not paying for gas, tolls, lunch, etc. I figured the least I could do was contribute my weekly gas expense to the Employee Relief Fund. AT&T matches each contribution and since it is taken out of my check pretax, I will hardly miss it.” – Lamar Johnson

Susan brings the magic

We love our kids, but they can be a handful. Plenty of parents are realizing how much work it takes to keep children entertained while crossing tasks off their daily to-do lists. Susan Lawson, a mother of three, can relate.

To give her fellow parenting friends a break, she offered digital story time for their kids – complete with a princess makeover. It only took 15 minutes, but that little spark of joy went a long way for the children. So much so that Susan is already planning on the next one!

Savannah’s team feels the burn

Who needs the gym for a workout? Savannah’s passion for fitness inspired her to host workout sessions with her sales region twice a week. While there are plenty of strength and cardio exercises you can do alone at home, there’s nothing quite like a Webex workout with the team to get the blood pumping.

Drop and give me 10!

Speaking of workouts, the pushup challenge took off in March on the #LifeAtATT Feed. Challengers must prove themselves with 10 (or more!) pushups before calling on five peers to do the same. How did this challenge start? We’re not sure. What we do know is that it lit a competitive fire for many of our employees. Some have even taken it as an opportunity to bond with their families.

Tim joins the testing taskforce

Tim Reynolds is an AT&T Business Solutions sales executive in Tupelo, Mississippi. He’s also a medic with the Mississippi National Guard and has been moving from town to town in northern Mississippi administering COVID-19 tests. While his family is at home, Tim has been performing double duty between his AT&T job and his active duty role with the National Guard.

“Supporting patients, frontline staff, and the background workers is the only way we are going to make strides against COVID-19. I have used a blend of my AT&T, FirstNet, and Army Medic training to assist with this support. I truly love what I do.” – Tim Reynolds
