NEW YORK (April 22, 2019) –FlightSafety International has been named one of the best mid-size employers by Forbes. This is the second consecutive year that the company has received this important recognition.
“We are pleased and honored that FlightSafety has been named by Forbes as one of America’s best mid-size employers again this year,” said Co-CEOs David Davenport and Ray Johns. “This is directly attributable to our focus on Teammates and our culture of quality and Customer service. We are committed to provide a positive work environment and family atmosphere that recognizes and rewards achievements, offers opportunities for advancement, and encourages open communication.”
Statista, an online statistics provider, conducted a survey on behalf of Forbes of more than 50,000 people who work for organizations in the United States with over 1,000 employees. Of those, 2,700 companies received enough positive evaluations to be considered for the list. FlightSafety is one of only 500 companies, and eight in the Aerospace & Defense industry category, named to the list of best mid-size employers.
Survey participants were contacted anonymously and asked to share their opinions about their workplace and employer. They were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their employer to friends and family. This is considered to be the most important and meaningful aspect of the survey. FlightSafety received a higher score in this area this year compared to 2018. In addition, when respondents were asked to recommend and evaluate other organizations in their industry, FlightSafety was more positively evaluated than 80% of all companies on the list.
