News on the New York City grapevine this week is that so many T-Mobile US store employees have asked to wear magenta sneakers just like those sported by CEO John Legere, that the colorful footwear has now been approved under the company's dress code.
Two things strike me about this.
Firstly -- T-Mobile US Inc. stores have a dress code? I've spent plenty of time in them, and I've never ever discerned any sartorial themes.
They say no press is bad press... T-Mobile embraced it and was promoting it all over Twitter. For how gross it was, Colbert actually got a lot of T-Mo info in, so I bet it helped the company, if anything.

No black turtlenecks and jeans for Apple stores? Hopefully, this isn't a trend for retail store employees to start dressing like their CEOs. Most CEOs aren't so fashionably notable, so this probably won't catch on. But it would be a bit creepy for Apple store employees to wear black turtlenecks and jeans all the time.

T-Mobile dress code I just went and checked they appear to have standardized on a black t-shirt with a magenta logo as standard store wear, so just to be fair, there does appear to be some measure of dress code.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
