- DHL Express, the world leader in logistics and express delivery, has been recognized for the fourth straight year as a leading global employer. Top Employers Institute awarded its prestigious Top Employer Global to DHL after certifying the company’s HR practices in 50 countries, more than any other company.
DHL Express was one of just 13 companies to be recognized as Top Employer Global and – for the fourth year in a row – the only company to be certified in all regions.
“Our people are everything at DHL Express. They form the backbone of our global transport network, they differentiate us from the competition by going the extra mile and most importantly, they deliver the customer experience. It’s therefore extremely gratifying to see our investments in our people recognized by organizations such as Top Employers Institute,” said Ken Allen, CEO, DHL Express. “We continually look for new ways of engaging and motivating our people, both professionally and personally. For example, our ‘DHL’s Got Heart’ competition to reward those employees who devote their time to charitable causes has allowed us this year to recognize those who display tremendous personal commitment both at work and within the communities in which we operate.”
“DHL Express employs about 100,000 international specialists in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide.
