SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 15 October
2020 –
DHL
Express
, the world’s leading international express service provider, has
been recognized as the second best place to work of all examined companies
around the world. In its 2020 employer ranking Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE
recognized the extensive investments and implementations of various initiatives
to create a positive, motivating and appreciative working atmosphere in more
than 220 countries and territories. Every year, Great Place to Work®, a global
people analytics and consulting firm, assesses the work experience of employees
through their certification program. In 2020, more than 10,000 organizations
participated in the survey process, representing the voices of 10.2 million
employees in 92 countries.

In its 2020 employer
ranking, Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE recognized DHL Express as the second
best place to work in the world.

DHL Express annually invests a double digit million
Euro amount in its employees around the world, running various HR initiatives
to continuously improve working conditions and motivate its teams. For example,
there is ‘DHL4her’, a program dedicated to supporting and developing women; DHL’s
Got Heart which enables DHL to support the causes that its people are
passionate about outside of work; and the Certified International Specialist
(CIS) learning program which offers various curriculums, equipping DHL Express
employees with the knowledge that they need to deliver the best quality service
for customers each day. Due to the remarkable efforts of DHL staff during the
Covid-19 pandemic, the company paid each employee around the world a one-off bonus
of EUR 300 in September 2020.

“The pandemic has
tested frontline companies like DHL Express like never before and we’re proud
that our employees have risen to the challenge. Despite the pandemic still
affecting our lives, and the safety of our employees remaining a top priority,
they insist on being part of the solution to support communities and bolster
global trade”, says John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express. “This spirit is the
result of our culture of recognition and is a key driver for our outstanding
employee satisfaction. I’m very proud of our initiatives that foster the
compassion, courage, and commitment of our teams. People are at the heart of
our company. That was true for the time before COVID, it is true now, and will
be true in the future.”

“Congratulations to
DHL Express, perhaps the most global company in the world. DHL delivered to
millions of customers every day in 2020 during the most difficult circumstances
faced by society since World War 2. Their people wore masks and drove, walked,
flew, hiked, bicycled, and whatever it took to safely deliver what customers
needed in every corner of the globe. Millions of lives depended on DHL and
their great people kept the earth safely spinning. These logistical first
responders are fueled by a high-trust “for all” culture. These are
passion-fueled people led by purpose-driven leaders who serve their people so
they can serve their customers. Every day they accept the challenge of
delighting customers, caring for every employee, globally redefining diversity,
and inclusion, and decreasing their impact on the environment, while improving
every community in which they operate. Simply put, DHL’s got heart and the
world is better because of it. Congratulations!” says Great Place to
Work’s CEO, Michael Bush.

DHL Express ranked
number two on the list of World’s Best Workplaces 2020, improving from its
position of fourth best workplace in the world in 2019. DHL Express saw itself
on 42 national best workplaces lists, with an additional 17 countries achieving
certification status. In April, DHL Express took the top spot on the list of
Best Workplaces in Asia, for the second consecutive year.

“DHL Express just
had one of its best third quarter results ever, and our success is absolutely
due to the dedication, passion and know-how of our people. It is their ability to
deliver peak performance on behalf of our customers, and their commitment to
continuous improvement, which makes us the world’s leading experience service
provider. We are immensely proud that our organization is consistently ranked
every year amongst the best workplaces in the world, and it is proof that we
are on the right track. We will continue to invest in our people and ensure that
every one of our 26,000 employees in Asia Pacific have a ‘Best Day Every Day’,”
said Ken Lee, CEO of DHL Express Asia Pacific.
