Southwest Airlines Ranked Among Forbes’ Best Employers in America

Southwest Airlines Co. today celebrates earning a spot on Forbes’ 2023 America’s Best Employers list.

This year marks the eighth time that Southwest® received this recognition.

“We’ve recruited, hired, and trained more Employees over the last year than ever in our history, and we’re dedicated to maintaining our People-first Culture as we continue to welcome new Cohearts to the Company,” said Lindsey Lang, Vice President People at Southwest Airlines.

“It’s only possible because of the Employees who serve our Customers—and one another—with Southwest Heart and Hospitality.”

Forbes partnered with Statista to select 2023 America’s Best Employers through an independent survey from a sample of more than 45,000 American employees working for large or midsize companies.

Survey participants were asked to anonymously rate their willingness to recommend their employers to friends and family.

Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out positively or negatively.

The survey has been conducted on companies across 25 industry sectors employing more than 1,000 employees in the United States.
