For DHL Express, valuing the work of its employees is of great importance. Therefore, the company annually invests in numerous employee initiatives. For example, employees are enabled and encouraged to support causes they are passionate about with the 'DHL's Got Heart' initiative. The 'DHL4All' framework which is centered on creating a culture of belonging for employees regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, ability, gender or sexual orientation is a strong driver of fair and inclusive practices. Through the 'Certified International Specialist' (CIS) program, employees are embraced into the cultural backbone at the heart of DHL Express and are empowered with the knowledge they need to deliver outstanding customer service every day.
"Being named the 'Best WorkplaceTM' in Europe for the second year in a row is a fantastic achievement by our employees at DHL Express. I am very proud of our teams and the work they have done, especially in dealing with the pandemic. We observe that young employees increasingly focus on a positive workplace culture, as well as flexibility. We address these preferences by consciously investing in numerous employee initiatives. We will keep building an inclusive, appreciative, and equal-opportunity workplace at DHL Express and look into cultivating unforgettable moments that matter for all," said Alastair McCambridge, Senior Vice President HR DHL Express Europe.
