Delta Pays Out Record Profiting Sharing to Employees
The move followed Delta’s report of a $4.5 billion profit for 2015.
The $1.5 billion sum is the largest employee profit sharing payment in U.S. history, the airline’s CEO, Richard Anderson, and incoming CEO, Ed Bastian, wrote in a memo to employees. The individual payout represents 21.4% of eligible annual pay.
“We are often asked what makes Delta different,” Anderson and Bastian said in the memo. “The difference is you. Our unique people-focused culture… is the advantage that none of our competitors can match.”
