In these times when many have said that working for the airlines is not as good as the old days and analysts opine that pilots are not as attracted a career of flying commercially as they used to be, the Forbes ratings suggest that those truisms may not be valid.
Forbes publishes an annual list which ranks the best employers from #1 to # 500; the honor roll includes 25 industries — banks, governmental bodies, academic institutions, hospitals, insurance companies, internet corporations, food/restaurants, manufacturers, retail and even the US Courts. The analysis was done by online statistics provider Statista, and it sent questionnaires to 30,000 U.S. workers employed by companies with more than 5,000 staff members to “determine, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else. Further, how did they feel about the other employers in their industry?” Marathon Petroleum was the winner of the 2016 poll.
Delta Airlines was ranked #161, Alaska #194, UPS #362 (including its ground transportation), and FedEx #406.
The normal format for these posts is to include the article links at the end of the article. The connections to the Jet Blue and Southwest press release are part of the beginning of this paper. That position highlights that Jet Blue claims to be in the Top 10, while Southwest words its title as the “Top Airline” on the Forbes list.
The Forbes list shows that Jet Blue is # 8 and Southwest is # 13.
The folks at Love Field, #8 is better than #13. Bad math Southwest!!!
Congratulations to all of the airlines whose employees showed them some love.
Happy employees are likely to be safe employees.Share this article:
