Saleh said he started an internal company blog to help communicate all of this information. He recently also launched a webcast that would reach nearly 60,000 employees who, as he put it, "have had a lot of distractions."
Saleh said one of his goals is to "rally" employees around the basics of running a cellphone company.
"Even though I'm not part of the Facebook generation, I want to provide them the opportunity to have access to me," Saleh said yesterday in one of his first interviews since assuming the role. "At the end of the day we want the employees to be focused on the customer, and to make sure they're not distracted or confused or concerned."
