Spirit Airlines Recognized by Forbes on America's Best Employers for Diversity Annual List


MIRAMAR, Fla., June 10, 2022 – Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) is honored to receive recognition from Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2022. Spirit represents one of 15 organizations in the Transportation and Logistics category on the annual list, and the airline credits its success to embracing the diversity of all its Team Members and creating a workplace environment where everyone feels they belong.

“Our vision is to advance our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) strategy to activate meaningful change,” said Linde Grindle, Chief Human Resources Officer at Spirit Airlines. “We will achieve this by focusing on representation of underrepresented groups in leadership roles, accelerating movement & building skill to advance career paths, and creating an environment that supports all Team Members for who they are to bring their best to the work each and every day.”

Forbes compiled the annual list through an independent survey applied to a sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees in companies with at least 1,000 people. The evaluation was based on criteria including organizational leadership representation and board diversity, engagement levels among diverse talent and direct recommendations from both employees and non-employees.

In addition to supporting the diversity of our entire Spirit Team daily, the airline annually recognizes and celebrates our diverse Team Members with additional awareness communications, events and activities. Spirit also believes that meaningful change is inspired when Team Members’ voices are heard, and to raise the voices of our Team Members, in 2020 Spirit launched a broad range of Council Groups to promote additional Team Member engagement across the organization.
