Corporate Responsibility[edit]

Slovak Telekom promotes the value of social inclusiveness and empathy within the company and in public, through a long term support for the Slovak community of people with hearing impairment: supporting their entrepreneurship skills, better education of children through a program of visiting personal tutors, and by providing services of online interpreters.

Communication[edit]

Since 2018, the new public face of the company in advertising campaigns is Bekim, a Slovak comedian and rapper, who started to use a wheelchair after he suffered an accident during a bicycle motocross competition in 2005. Bekim follows Peter Sagan, a famous Slovak professional road bicycle racer, who represented Slovak Telekom before him. The company’s slogan is “ÁNO” (“YES”) symbolizing a yell of an inventor who shouts “Yes” after coming up with some new technology. It also represents a defiant call that “Nothing is impossible”, “I say yes to a challenge” and “I will make it”.
