Delta is a very proud airline, sometimes for better, and sometimes for worse. Today they’re doing something that seems like a cute way to recognize their employees. Specifically, Delta is having a Facebook Live where they’re thanking their roughly 80,000 employees by name. Yes, every single one of them, alphabetically.
They say that it will take them 50 hours, and that they’ll have 430 people from 23 cities reading the names. That means each person is reading off roughly a couple of hundred names. They started this just a couple of hours ago, so I guess it’ll be going on around the clock for the next couple of days.
Here’s how Delta describes what they’re doing:
How do you thank more than 80,000 hard-working, dedicated employees across the globe?
With a very Big Thank You. #DeltaProud
As much as I’m frustrated by aspects of Delta SkyMiles, etc., you can’t fault the airline for how well they take care of their employees. This is an area where some other airlines could learn a lesson.
