SkyWest, Inc, the holding company for SkyWest Airlines and ExpressJet Airlines, has been named one of “America’s Best Employers” by Forbes. SkyWest is the only regional airline company included on the 2015 list and is one of just six Utah based businesses to be recognized.
“We pride ourselves on taking good care of the nearly 20,000 aviation professionals who work at SkyWest and know that our success is a result of the incredible work they are doing every day,” said Chip Childs, President of SkyWest, Inc. “We’re glad to see those efforts recognized by this Forbes list and are focused on continuing to attract the best candidates to join our team.”
SkyWest was a part of the Transportation and Logistics category of the list, which included a total of 25 different industries. SkyWest was previously named the Best Managed Transportation Company by Forbes in January 2006. The 500 employers on the Forbes list were chosen based on an independent survey by Statista.com of 20,000 American employees working for large U.S. companies and institutions, and U.S. divisions of international firms.
