Delta has reported that for the third year in a row, it has been named a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion,” receiving a top score of 100 percent on the 2018 Disability Equality Index (DEI), the company said.

This year´s DEI measured key performance indicators across several areas, including organizational culture, leadership, accessibility, employment, community engagement, support services and supplier diversity. With respect to their efforts in these areas, more than 140 companies were scored on a scale of 0 to 100. Those who received a DEI score of 80 and above were recognized as the nation´s “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion.”
