Southwest Airlines® announced today that it was named as One of the Best Places to Work in 2015 by Glassdoor, a career community that provides reviews of companies from current and previous employees.
The airline placed 15th on the list, is the only airline to be recognized, and is the top-ranked Company within the travel industry to receive this award.
This is the sixth consecutive year that Southwest Employee reviews have earned the carrier this distinction. Winners were chosen based entirely on company reviews submitted by Employees.
“We are proud to receive this recognition, and it’s especially meaningful as it comes from our Employees,” said Julie Weber, Vice President of People at Southwest Airlines.
“We put our People first, and most of them feel that their job is a calling, rather than just a job.
Our Employees are the best in the industry, and it is their hard work and passion that make Southwest one of the best places to work.”
Glassdoor’s list recognizes the 50 companies with the highest overall ranking based on reviews in 2014.
The survey allows employees to provide anonymous reviews on the best reasons to work at the company, the downsides, and feedback for senior management.
Employees rate their satisfaction with the company and the CEO, as well as workplace factors that include work/life balance, career opportunities, culture, communication, compensation and benefits, fairness and respect, employee morale, recognition and feedback, and Senior Leadership.
Glassdoor is a job and career community for employees and recruiters to gain first-hand insight to companies with more than six million reviews and millions of job opportunities.
The site was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Sausalito, Calif.
