DHL Express has been recognised as the fourth best place to work globally in the 2019 employer ranking from Great Place to Work and Fortune, and has moved up two spots since 2018.
In 2019, more than 8,000 organisations participated in the survey process, representing 12 million employees worldwide. From that pool of companies, the 25 World’s Best Workplaces have been selected. The assessment criteria are built around the core criterion of Trust, analysing the relationship of employees with management, other employees and to their jobs.
This year DHL Express was ranked as one of the best workplaces of the world for the third time in a row.
DHL Express CEO John Pearson said in a statement: "This hat-trick is a huge source of pride for everyone at DHL Express. It is also a strong testament that our culture of recognition is a main driver for our outstanding employee satisfaction.
"Our more than 100,000 employees are at the heart of our business and the most important driver of our global success. They are the ones who put their passion for their work at the service of our customers to offer them best possible quality – everyday, everywhere.”
"Great Place to Work CEO Michael Bush added: "If you think about what over 100,000 people do every day at DHL in over 220 countries to deliver products and services in the most urban and remote corners of the world, this is perhaps the most global company in the world.
"When you think about all the language, culture, weather, and regulatory challenges they face daily and yet they are able to connect people and improve lives (putting their employees first) it is clearly one of the most amazing companies in the world. 92% of their people from the top of the organization to the frontline say it is a Great Place to Work For All. Their secret? Being purpose driven and having the most innovative and comprehensive 'Certified International Specialist' training programme in the world."
