United has been named as one of the "Best Places to Work" for 2016 by the American Association of People with Disabilities and the US Business Leadership Network

United Airlines achieved the top score of 100% on the 2016 Disability Equality Index, a prominent benchmarking metric that rates US companies on their disability inclusion policies and practices. This designation also earns United a place on DEI's 2016 "Best Places to Work" list.

The DEI, a joint initiative by the American Association of People with Disabilities and the US Business Leadership Network, evaluates companies based on four categories: culture and leadership, enterprise-wide access, employment practices and community engagement and support services.

"This recognition is the result of the dedication from our employees all around the world that help ease travel for our customers, and build a culture that embraces our employees with disabilities," commented Mike Bonds, United's Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Labour Relations. "We continue to invest in technology and training programmes that improve accessibility, and remain committed to promoting an inclusive work environment."
