US Airline, Southwest, giving staff referral bonuses as part of hiring push

18th Aug 2021

In an article from FoxBusiness, on August 18, quoted as follows: “Southwest Airlines is looking to boost its workforce to keep pace with the rapid resurgence in air travel and is turning to its employees for help.

The airline – which needs to ‘hire in large numbers’ in order to support its growing business – is asking employees to encourage potential applicants that share in the company’s value to apply.

Employees will be rewarded if they refer an applicant that is later offered a position.

For instance, employees can receive 20,000 ‘Southwest Airlines Gratitude {SWAG} Points if a referral is offered a position and completes six months with the carrier,’ the airline said, adding that those points can be redeemed online,” this just manifests that the demand continues through the roof and airlines are strategizing on ways on how they can recruit staff.
