A sense of belonging and a common purpose
Promoting a sense of belonging among employees is a key focus at DHL Express. Beyond talent development, the company prioritizes recognizing and celebrating its workforce. Initiatives like "Appreciation Week" highlight the dedicated efforts of employees globally, and the "Employee of the Year" program commends individuals who exemplify the company's core values of 'speed,' 'passion,' 'can do,' and 'right first time.'
All employees share a common purpose encapsulated by DHL Group's mission of 'connecting people, improving lives.' This goes beyond their regular job responsibilities, as they actively contribute to the well-being of the communities around them. Participation in corporate responsibility programs, such as DHL Got Heart, Global Volunteering Day, GoHelp, GoTeach, and GoTrade, reflects the commitment to making a positive impact beyond the workplace.
Fadzlun Sapandi, Executive Vice President of HR at DHL Express, emphasizes the company's deep commitment to its workforce, stating: "At the core of our operations are our people, who are always our top priority. We strive to create a motivating work environment where everyone feels a strong sense of belonging. By ensuring our employees are seen, heard, and understood, we make every day a fulfilling experience for our team. Their unique contributions and perspectives are what drive our success and distinguish us in the industry."
"Being a global employer comes with immense responsibility to people and to the planet," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To WorkTM. "These extraordinary companies are having an incredible impact, supporting their people, and fighting for fairer, safer, and healthier communities around the globe. When you empower people to work with purpose, they reward you with innovation and performance - and help create a better world for all of us."
