Virus outbreak apart, a Dallas-based carrier may not be a low place to search for a career, Forbes says. A recent report by Forbes and Statista places Southwest Airlines prominent on the U.S. list of top employers with new surveys.
Southwest Airlines climbed 28 places with one year to No. 11, even though the coronavirus took the airline industry to a dead stop in 2020.
To assemble the list released on 16 September, Statista polled 20,000 Americans with fewer than ten years of experience employed with corporations, including at least 1,000 workers. Employees scored their employers on several metrics, including protection at work, the competitiveness of pay, prospects for promotion, the productivity of diversity and incorporation initiatives, and access to communications. Statista also questioned employees how willing they would be to refer their company to others and to appoint employers beyond their sectors. The final ranking contains the 250 workers that have offered the most support.
As Forbes says, “In a July letter to staff, CEO Gary Kelly wrote, ‘We have little intentions of pursuing furloughs, promotions, changes in salaries or changes in compensation throughout at least the close of this year.’
“At the time of the decision, though, 28 percent of Southwest staff officially had already undertaken voluntary notice of leave or early retirement. “Survey participants to our surveys are likely to recognize the ability to travel the planet, as well as Southwest’s contribution to wealth sharing — which gained workers $667 million in 2019.”
