October Program: Leading the Way!


Details coming soon!

Session Description

In 2012, Pinnacle Airlines filed chapter 11.  In August of 2013, the company reorganized and emerged as the wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines under the name Endeavor Air.  By 2017 Endeavor Air has grown to 4,500 employees, and is the top performing regional carrier in the Delta Connection portfolio. This was accomplished in a time where the “war for talent” was at an all-time high with additional complexities like low unemployment, increased and varied compliance requirements in specific locations, and union pressures. The presentation will focus on Talent Acquisition, how they successfully hire around 1,300 employees per year, and how they are implementing retention programs to include talent development.  With a formal, existing Delta partnership, their employees have become the Gold Standard for getting offers from Delta and other major carriers.  The workforce is autonomous, constantly moving and with many locations across the United States, which makes for a very interesting Talent Development strategy and delivery story.
