Great Place to Work and Fortune have named Delta Air Lines as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Millennials, the first time Delta has won this honor. The ranking considered feedback representing over 4.5 million employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Delta is the only airline among the 100 companies honored, landing the No. 61 spot on the list.
Research from Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees' feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
"Millennials today face a unique set of challenges both in and out of the workplace ranging from cumbersome student loans to a lack of trust in their management," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "The Best Workplaces on this list have created a greater sense of fairness, collaboration, and professional development for millennials. These positive experiences empower them to bring their full potential to the workplace and the world."
