Delta named the Most Admired Airline and Overall Most Admired Supplier in The Beat Readers' Choice Awards

For the eighth consecutive year, Delta has been named the Most Admired Airline and Overall Most Admired Supplier in The Beat Readers' Choice Awards. Delta's S.V.P. — Global Sales, Bob Somers, and V.P. — Sales Operations and Development, Kristen Shovlin, received the awards for Delta at the 12th annual The Beat Live conference today in New York.

"On behalf of our entire team, I want to thank the readers of The Beat for again recognizing Delta," Bob said. "We are passionate about providing you the exceptional reliability, products and service you deserve, and we'll never stop working to earn your trust and your business. I also want to thank Delta's 80,000 employees for setting Delta apart from the competition, each and every day."

The annual The Beat Readers' Choice Awards are based on a reader poll that asks participants to choose the brand that they "most admire for its policies, management style and service for business clients" in six supplier categories (Airline, Hotel, Car Rental, Travel Management Company, Travel Technology, Payment System) in addition to an overall Supplier of the Year.

The Beat has over 10,000 subscribers consisting of senior-level travel executives from travel management companies, airlines, hotels, technology companies, expense and payment companies as well as corporate travel buyers, consultants and industry analysts.​

‘Best Workplace for Women’

It is not just The Beat that giving Delta awards,  earlier Great Place To Work® and Fortune have named Delta Air Lines as one of the country's Best Workplaces for Women, the third year in a row the airline has earned this honour.

The list considered employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women's assessment of their organizations' culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace. Delta placed 67th on the list, and is the only airline to be included.

"We are proud of making this list for a third year in a row, and are always looking for even better ways to create an inclusive, engaging and welcoming culture for all," said Joanne Smith, Delta's Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer.

This year Delta once again achieved 100% pay parity. Learn more about the ways Delta is working to close the gap for women in the workplace here.

To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.6 million U.S. employees. Most of the ranking is based on what women themselves report in a 60-question "Trust Index" survey about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to men's reports of the same workplaces.

Fifteen percent of the remaining rank is based on how well-represented women are in the workforce and throughout management, considering industry trends. To be considered, at a minimum, companies need to employ at least 50 women, at least 20 % of their non-executive managers need to be female, and at least one of their executives needs to be female.

"These winning companies are thriving because women have an equal seat at every table where critical decisions are made," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Organizations like Delta know that creating a great workplace where everyone can succeed regardless of gender is not just the right thing to do, but a must-do if you want to be the very best of everything in the marketplace."

A complete list of winners is available at the Great Place to Work site.
