Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) said it will pay its employees more than a half-billion dollars in earned profit sharing–the highest payout in company history–in recognition for their industry-leading performance in 2013.
Employees´ individual payouts will equal 8.26 percent of their eligible 2013 earnings.
“Thank you to Delta´s nearly 80,000 people worldwide who made 2013 a banner year for Delta through the strong work ethic and values they demonstrate every day,” said Delta CEO Richard Anderson. “This year´s profit sharing payment is a reflection of their hard work and of our conviction that if we take care of our employees, they take care of our customers and that enables our shareowners to succeed.”
