Global delivery player DHL Express has been recognised as among the best employers in the world by the Top Employers Institute. The Institute highlighted DHL Express’s strong performance in its areas of values, strategy, ethics and integrity.
“We are delighted to be certified in so many countries all over the globe”, says John Pearson, CEO DHL Express. “Thanks to our passionate and powerful people we are ensuring that global trade continues and that our customers remain in business while so many areas of life have come to standstill. Our people are at the heart of our company and their safety has always been a top priority to us. Receiving this award is a great recognition of efforts in creating great conditions for our teams to develop and thrive within the world’s most international company.”
One of the major reasons it has achieved recognition is in the fact that DHL Express invests several million Euros a year in its global workforce. It runs a number of human resources initiatives to improve its employees’ working conditions and to equip them with the knowledge required to be motivated to prevent the company’s best face to their customers every day. As a thank you for their hard work during the pandemic it gave all of its staff a one-off bonus of €300.
“We take great pride in being truly committed to putting our people first and for that reason being recognized as a Global Top Employer for the seventh year in a row is an award we hold in great esteem” says Regine Buettner, Executive Vice President HR Global at DHL Express. “The last 12 months have been testing for everyone, including our employees – the majority of whom have been frontline workers during the pandemic. During times like these it is more important than ever to stay committed to upholding only the highest workplace standards and we’re pleased to be recognised for that with this award”.
