Delta Wins Alfred P. Sloan Award for Workplace Flexibility

/PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) has won the 2009 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility, a national honor recognizing the company's efforts to provide a variety of workplace options that allow employees to perform at their best at work and at home.

"This distinguished award recognizes our continuing efforts to implement programs that provide our people more flexibility to balance work life and personal time," said Mike Campbell, executive vice president-Human Resources and Labor Relations. "Our people are the best in the industry, and when they're at their best Delta is a better company."

More than 18 months ago, Delta launched several new workplace policies and programs to address the specific needs of individual work groups. These include:

-- A work-at-home program for Reservations Sales, whereby call center
employees are equipped with company computers and phones in their
homes to allow them to assist customers on flexible schedules.
-- Flexible shift opportunities for employees in many areas, with
generous swapping and shift-trading policies, compressed work weeks
with paid personal time off and personal leaves of absence.
-- A corporate telecommuting program for eligible employees, which equips
them with the tools to work from home when necessary and provides the
flexibility to achieve a healthy work-life balance.

Sloan Award winners are evaluated through a rigorous, two-step process which measures a company's workplace flexibility against national data, then validates the results through a random survey of employees.
