Perks and Programs

We asked Comcast NBCUniversal to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Innovation Incentives and Opportunities: Comcast NBCUniversal believes in supporting corporate success through entrepreneurialism and innovation – giving our people a chance to make a difference through diverse connections. We provide many opportunities for employees to showcase their ideas and talents, including: TEDXComcast: a quarterly broadcast for all employees to share original ideas devoted to foster deep discussion about technology, entertainment and design from different perspectives; Lab Week: an opportunity for Comcast employees to partner, explore and develop projects that may be unrelated to their day-to-day work, sparking innovative efforts on personally-selected projects; Comcast Crowdsource: A group “think tank” program to crowdsource solutions and solicit feedback.
  • Customer Experience Rewards: We nurture our culture of innovation while fostering pride and camaraderie through popular contests, including: “The Idea”: Modeled on NBC’s hit show “The Voice,” in which employees pitch ideas to our CEOs on how to drive innovation with existing resources. Winners receive cash prizes and the opportunity to see their ideas come to life; Internal Hackathon: teams across Comcast NBCUniversal compete for cash prizes by creating new entertainment experiences that delight our audiences; Frontline employees who deliver great customer experiences are able to share their innovative ideas competitively as well, resulting in prizes such as tickets to the NASCAR XFINITY Series Opener and attendance at the Rio Olympics.
  • Diversity & Inclusion Programs: Cultivating a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects our customers is at the heart of Comcast NBCUniversal. It is both the right thing to do and the best way to run a business. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) support an inclusive culture by offering hundreds of cultural, networking, and professional development events and forums each year, connecting our employees. After participating in ERG Mentorship programs, more than half of mentees have been promoted. Our ERGs provide feedback on new products to ensure we are caring for our diverse customer base. We offer a regular national broadcast, the “Employee Enrichment Series,” to increase cultural awareness and educate employees about our D&I efforts. We partner with over a dozen national diverse community organizations to generate recruitment and employee engagement opportunities.

We're delivering on our commitment to hire 10,000 veterans, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouses by the end of 2017. We support our employees who continue serving the country in the National Guard and Reserve while pursuing a career with us by offering industry-leading benefits, including: a human resources team dedicated to assisting our military employees and their families throughout military training/deployments; continued benefits (health, 401(k), etc.) for up to three years if employees are called to active duty; up to 15 days paid time off annually for military training in addition to normal paid time off. VetNet, an employee resource group, is focused on growing the professional and personal development of veterans and their allies.
  • Community Investment Programs: Making a positive impact in communities where employees live and work is a key part of the Comcast NBCUniversal culture. We support our year-round commitment to service each year with Comcast Cares Day, when more than 100,000 volunteers revitalize parks, beautify schools, stock food banks, refresh playgrounds, provide support services, and much more. It’s one of the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer efforts. Internet Essentials, the largest program of its kind, has provided at-home high-speed internet access to 1 million low-income American families, benefiting 4 million people.

Through the program, about 400 "Littles" spend time with “Bigs” at Comcast offices in 17 cities.
  • Know Your Value Program: Know Your Value is an employee extension of the national program developed by NBCUniversal News Group and MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski. It’s designed to empower employees and highlight the importance of providing a voice to everyone, regardless of their gender or role. Sessions topics include the importance of defining your personal brand, ways to better manage your physical, financial and emotional health, pathways to success, and more. More than 350 selected employees from across Comcast NBCUniversal meet at events to discuss understanding, developing and applying one’s personal value in ways that can advance their careers and help the Company.
