Largest profit-sharing payment in company’s history
Fifth consecutive year airline rewards employees with profit sharing
Total individual payouts will equal more than 16 percent of employees’ eligible 2014 earnings, which equates to an average of nearly two months’ salary. In October 2014, Delta paid a 5 percent advance on profit sharing to employees.
The 2014 payout is a record for the airline industry, and among the highest for any U.S. corporation.
In addition to profit sharing, Delta’s Shared Rewards program pays out monthly bonuses for meeting corporate operational goals throughout the year.
In 2014, Delta employees earned more than $84 million in Shared Rewards as the company achieved history-making operational and financial results. Delta has paid out $2.9 billion to employees in profit sharing and Shared Rewards during the past five years.
Delta employees will be honored for their record-breaking performance today at events held across its global network.
