At Southwest, gratitude is way of life. By clearly linking every recognition and incentive program to our Purpose, Vision, Values, and Mission, we encourage and reward the behaviors and performance that will help Southwest become the world’s most loved, most flown, and most profitable airline. Our Employees are recognized on a day-to-day basis by their peers, Leaders, and Customers through various programs, including Kick Tail!
What is the Kick Tail Program?
Kick Tail is both a recognition and incentive program at Southwest Airlines. Employees can recognize one another day-to-day with a paper Kick Tail in person or an eKick Tail to say thanks for “Living and Working the Southwest Way.” Each Kick Tail serves as an entry into the Kick Tail database for monthly and yearly Kick Tail drawings—including cash prizes!
The Kick Tail Prize Patrol made its way to Chicago to surprise one of our cash winners, MDW Flight Attendant Suzy King, to the delight of our Customers and Employees. We even got Gary in on the fun—take a look!
