There is strength in diversity. It fuels innovation, sparks creativity, and cultivates an atmosphere of continuous learning and improvement. Alaska and Horizon foster inclusive environments that recognizes, respects and appreciates the different backgrounds, perspectives and cultures of their employees.
A strong future depends on innovative and talented leaders. That’s why the Developing Emerging Leaders (DEL) program is so important—it’s designed to prepare employees at Alaska or Horizon for future leadership opportunities.
DEL is a competitive six-month leadership development program for high potential frontline employees, individual contributors and new supervisors who have demonstrated outstanding performance, values, and are interested in pursuing leadership roles. In addition to their regular job duties, participants complete individual and group assignments that provide exposure across the business while developing leadership skills and solving real business challenges.
“Over the course of six months my team created bonds so strong we didn’t want the program to end, but I know I have deep connections with leaders across the company that will last for years to come.” – Nicole, Campaign Manager, Brand Marketing
