AT&T: number of employees 2007-2019

In 2019, the telecommunications company AT&T had nearly 248 thousand employees, which is a slight increase compared to the previous year. This makes AT&T the largest employer in the U.S. telecommunications industry today, ahead of Verizon, T-Mobile U.S. and Sprint.

AT&T’s workforce

While the multinational corporation has employees in 59 countries, the vast majority (roughly 80 percent) is employed in the United States; its home market. Not only is AT&T the largest employer in the telecom industry in the United States, it is also the largest company headquartered in Texas, employing roughly 80 thousand more people than the runner-up, Keller Williams (180,000).

As a global employer, the company strives for workforce diversity and provides information on the makeup of its workforce. In 2018 almost 45 percent of U.S. employees were persons of color, while a third of employees worldwide were female in 2018.

AT&T’s revenue

In terms of revenue, AT&T was in the lead in 2018 with roughly 170 billion U.S. dollars, once again surpassing other major telecommunications providers. The distribution of employees is proportionate to the revenue generated each year. In 2018, about 90 percent of the global total revenue was earned in the United States alone, AT&T’s home market.
