DHL EXPRESS has been certified as a Top Employer in North America and Latin America for 2015. At the global level, the company garnered Global Top Employer award, a distinction that recognises the company’s commitment to support and develop its employees worldwide.

In the Americas region, six countries received the certification: the United States, Barbados, Brazil, Curacao, Jamaica and Mexico. The annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world based on several areas: providing excellent employee conditions, nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and striving to continuously optimise employment practices.

DHL Express also received Top Employer certifications in other regions of the world, including Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. Overall, 32 countries were granted certifications.

DHL programmes which the Top Employers Institute considered upon assessing the company included talent strategies, compensation and benefits, leadership development, workforce planning and performance management.

“To be recognised as a Top Employer is an outstanding honour that acknowledges DHL’s complete dedication to its employees,” said Stephen Fenwick, chief executive officer of DHL Express Americas. 

“Our company is fully vested in maximising the potential talent of our employees. We believe that by motivating people, by providing them with the tools and support to fully develop their skills, we are nurturing an exceptional workforce. It is our people who make the difference in our company.”

“Our extensive research concluded that DHL forms part of a select group of employers that advance employee conditions worldwide. Their people are well taken care of. Now that they have received the Top Employers North America 2015 certification, they can truly consider themselves at the top of an exclusive group of the world’s best employers. Reason to celebrate!” said Judith Oude Sogtoen, director of international business development for the Top Employers Institute.

The Certified International Specialist Programme has been a key factor in engaging DHL employees across all levels and functions – helping each understand how critical they are to the overall business success. The programme goes beyond providing the fundamentals in cross-border international shipping.  It’s a cultural change programme that delivers tangible benefits for DHL customers – driving service quality and empowering employees to develop to their fullest and find greatness within themselves.  (PR)
