Earlier this week, Delta Air Lines rewarded its more than 80.000 employees worldwide with US$1.1 billion in profit sharing payments. In addition to the payments, the company thanked its employees through events and ad placements in US newspapers.

“Delta employees earned the US$1.1 billion payout for their role in delivering record-breaking operational, financial and customer satisfaction performance,” a company press release states.

The US$1.1 billion payment is part of the company’s profit sharing programme, through which employees “share in the succes they create together through hard work and a focus on the customer”.  Over the past five years, the airline has paid out nearly US$5 billion through the programme.

In a move that combines marketing efforts with showing appreciation to staff, Delta ran ads in several large US newspapers thanking their employees.
