DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, has once again been recognized as one of the world’s leading employers. The company was one of just eight companies to be certified as a Top Employer Global 2016. For the second year running, DHL was also the only company to be certified in every continent around the world. The Top Employers Global Certification is a program organized by the Top Employers Institute, designed to recognize employers that globally create the optimal conditions for their employees to develop, professionally and personally.
DHL Express CEO Ken Allen said: “We are delighted to once again be recognized as a global Top Employer by Top Employers Institute. With around 90,000 employees in 220 countries and territories worldwide, DHL Express places its people right at the center of our strategy. We have invested significantly in creating and celebrating a winning culture, and we have seen first-hand the positive impact that this has had on our business performance. Thanks to our dedicated, engaged people around the world, DHL has continuously strengthened its position as the global leader in international express delivery in recent years.”
