DPD listed in Sunday Times Best Companies

Delivery company DPD has made the ‘Sunday Times’ Top 25 Companies to Work For’ list for the first time. It will feature at the Best Companies awards celebration in London this coming Thursday (28/1/15).

The Best Companies list celebrates excellence in workplace engagement and is one of the top such indices in the UK in terms of workplace engagement. According to a statement from DPD, the index is based on employees’ opinions of how the company, “Supports wellbeing in the workplace, gives something back to society, shows strong leadership and teaming, provides opportunities for personal growth, and offers fair pay and benefits.”

In the announcement from the Sunday Times, the newspaper said, “DPD understands it needs to retain and develop the most customer centric people in their industry and they’ve wow’ed us with how they’ve achieved it.”

Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO commented, “What we’ve achieved in the last year is quite extraordinary and way beyond my expectations. The Queen’s Award and now this have just moved us into a different league altogether. A lot of people have recognised the fact that we have been growing rapidly. But it is just as important to me that we’re growing the right way – by investing in our network, innovating with market leading technology and by nurturing and developing our people. To make the Sunday Times ‘best places to work’ list is a fantastic validation of this ethos.

“As a business we aim to put people at the heart of everything we do, so we do like to think that we have the most motivated staff in our industry. However, it is results like this that prove it, and it’s all the more precious to us because it’s our people saying DPD is a great place to work.”

DPD has won a number of other awards in the last year and is widely recognised as being one of the most competitive and best delivery companies in the UK.
