Delta Air Lines has been named an honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, for the fifth year in a row. The award recognizes Delta as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States. Delta is the only airline named to the list again this year.
“Part of being a purpose-driven company that creates connections means giving back to the communities where we live, work and serve. It is core to Delta’s culture, and we are honored to be named to the Points of Light Civic 50 for the fifth year in a row—especially in a year where volunteering and service took on a whole new meaning,” said Tad Hutcheson, Managing Director of Community Engagement at Delta.
For 10 years, The Civic 50 has provided a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company. The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
“Corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement is critical for strengthening communities,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO of Points of Light. “Our most recent global research shows 86% of people say they expect companies to take action on a social issue. Companies like Delta Air Lines are leading the way and setting an example of how you can leverage your employee talent, business models and assets to create deep impact that drives transformational change.”
The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact and consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
