TELUS Legend: our new lifetime achievement award

Celebrating our TELUS legends, past and present

In all areas of human endeavour, from social innovation, sports, education, health, and the arts to business, we honour the contributions of truly exceptional people by bestowing on them a singular status:  that of legend.

“The TELUS team has our own share of legends and I am proud to announce the first recipients of our new TELUS Legend Award,” says Darren Entwistle.  “These inspiring individuals have been at the vanguard of advancing our company and industry whilst also being leaders in making our communities more caring and sustainable.  They have all been instrumental and remarkable in building our TELUS legacy.”



What makes a TELUS Legend?

The TELUS Legend Award recognizes current and former team members with 20 years or more service who, over the years and through every stage of our company’s growth, have demonstrated a sustained level of high performance, served as mentors and an inspiration to other team members, been leaders in giving back to our communities, and consistently and visibly exhibited our TELUS leadership values. 



How does it feel to be a Legend?

"From a personal perspective, it’s unbelievable to realize you’ve been selected,” says Gaetan Rousseau, executive director, Client Service and Operations with TELUS Québec. “For me, the team always comes first – it has been my motto for more than 30 years. This is truly the highlight of my career and I wish I could share this award with every single person I have worked with over the course of my career – none of this would have been possible without their constant support and incredible contributions."

“Being named a Legend at TELUS is a very humbling and wonderfully satisfying experience,” says Brad Harper, retired vice-president, Workforce Solutions with Human Resources. “It makes you realize your efforts and impact were noticed and appreciated. Additionally, I feel humbled by all the great people I worked with while at TELUS.” 



Celebrating our Legends

We’ll be paying tribute to our TELUS Legends in a variety of ways. As part of the Legend package, TELUS will make a charitable donation on behalf of each TELUS Legend to a charity of their choice.

The TELUS Legend Award is an integral part of our comprehensive recognition program that was recently named the best in the world by Recognition Professionals International. It is a further tangible demonstration of our commitment to honour the diverse and important contributions our team members make to our company’s continuing success.
