The Patriot Employee Resource Group is dedicated to employees who currently or previously served in the U.S. military — in any way — along with civilians and family members back home.

Focusing on creating a supportive community for employees who have served, this group is committed to:

  • Growing community outreach efforts in support of military and law enforcement oriented groups. Since its founding, TDS' Patriot group has teamed up with many organizations, including Toys for Tots, VFW, and American Legion.
  • Supporting the Badger Honor Flight golf outing, an event sponsored in part by TDS. Funds raised at the event provide WWII and terminally ill veterans an opportunity to see the memorials erected in their honor in Washington, D.C.
  • Helping experienced, former military members discover career opportunities at TDS. Here you get a unique opportunity to put your military experience and education to work — at one of the nation's largest telecommunications companies. Our Military Recruiting initiative seeks to pre-qualify veterans (with an honorable discharge), active military members, and National Guard Reservists for certain positions. TDS recognizes your service and sacrifice and we're here to help you achieve your career goals by offering meaningful employment opportunities.
