Recognizing Employees: Southwest's Winning Spirit Award

Explorer C

Southwest Airlines has the best Employees in the airline industry (yes, I might be a bit biased) and we LUV to recognize them for all the wonderful things they do.  The Winning Spirit Award recognizes Employees who go out of their way to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.  On October 6, CEO Gary Kelly and COO Mike Van de Ven proudly honored 34 outstanding Employees by sharing their wonderful stories and thanking them for their contribution.  Whether receiving the Winning Spirit Award for their above and beyond Hospitality or heroic efforts, this amazing group of Employees’ actions represent the Heart of our great Company. winning spirit

Every Southwest Employee has the power to make a positive difference and to be the bright spot in someone’s day.  LAS Ramp Agent Jerico Nazareno knows this to be true, and that’s why he wakes up each day and chooses to be happy and to make others smile. Here's a video of him in action.
