PHL Works

Airport-Wide Employee Recognition Program

PHL's Airport Employee Recognition Program is an airport-wide effort to recognize outstanding employee performance and conduct that supports our collective goal of providing a safe, smooth and enjoyable guest experience.

Personnel from across the airport community are encouraged to nominate other airport employees, direct reports or contractors from any organization that demonstrates three or more of the Airport Community Values:

  • Customer-centrism
  • Teamwork
  • Transcending expectations
  • Proactive communication
  • Effectiveness
  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Courage

When you see great performance, take a moment to recognize the employee by sharing their story and completing the form here.

*Please note that the next quarterly deadline for submissions is April 30, 2024.  Airport employees may be nominated by passengers or any fellow airport employee.  Employees may not nominate themselves for an award.
