It’s already one year since the publication of the very first issue of our 360 magazine. Although the magazine took the team just over two months to materialize, it wouldn’t have been possible without the participation from our Delta family from Southeast Asia, India, Australia and even Europe.
The team wanted to produce an employee magazine that is fun, casual and something people actually want to read and easily accessible. This means that the editorial team has to create contents not from our perspectives but from the readers’ perspective; put it on a responsive internet platform that is equally attractive on laptop and mobile; accessible to every single employee including our frontline workers; provide rich contents which are not already on our website; and most of all provide a platform for our regional Delta family to get to know each other better from our management to our hardworking operators. Consequently, we’ve set a clear objective for the magazine- to provide useful Delta insights for Delta employees from India, SEA and Australia. It shall be a magazine that employees will look forward to.
Like every great project, if I may say so, it must start with a meaningful name. Thus when the team set out to find that perfect name, we’ve shortlisted several interesting ones as illustrated in above. We’ve eventually settled for 360. In case you’ve missed the meaning behind the name as explained in Hello from our first issue, it is meant to refer to an endless loop of engaging you and interacting with you. We also want to cover a 360 degree spectrum of life in Delta from your perspectives, around your region and occasionally across the globe.
As we enter 2021, on behalf of our 360 editorial team, I would like to thank you for being a part of our amazing 1-year journey and invite you to join in on the conversation for a better tomorrow at Delta.
Here’s to another awesome year together!
About the Author (Editorial Team)
Cliché inspirational quotes make me cringe while creative ideas and people inspire me. Love food, dogs, traveling and staying healthy. Not one who is contented to be marching on the same spot for too long, I am grateful for the many opportunities given to explore and learn new things in Delta since 2004.
