As Delta people continue powering outstanding financial and operational results, the company is continuing to invest in them.
The airline announced last week that it is increasing most employees’ base pay by 6 percent while continuing to offer a generous profit sharing plan. The company also is increasing its automatic 401(k) contribution to three percent while maintaining a dollar-for-dollar match of the first 6 percent of eligible earnings.
In a memo to employees, CEO Ed Bastian said, “I’m proud to say that Delta has led the industry in compensation increases for our employees the last several years and has set the standard for other airlines to follow. This increase, coupled with our profit sharing program that also leads the industry by workgroup, enables us to maintain industry leading total compensation among our global competitors.”
