Disability Equality Index gives top marks to United Airlines

United Airlines (UAL) has announced it has earned a 100% score on the 2018 Disability Equality Index (DEI), a prominent benchmarking metric that rates U.S. companies on their disability inclusion policies and practices, the company said.

This designation also earns United a place on DEI´s 2018 “Best Places to Work” list.

The DEI is a dual initiative between the American Association of People with Disabilities and the US Business Leadership Network, jointly designed by disability advocates and business leaders as a highly trusted comprehensive benchmarking tool for disability inclusion. The Index measures key performance indicators across organizational culture, leadership, accessibility, employment, community engagement, support services and supplier diversity.

United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,600 flights a day to 357 airports across five continents. In 2017, United and United Express operated more than 1.6 million flights carrying more than 148 million customers.
