DHL Express Listed Eighth of 25 World’s Best Workplaces
DHL Express, the world leader in logistics and express delivery, has been recognised as the eighth best place to work globally in a 2017 employer ranking from Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE. In Qatar, DHL creates a motivating and engaging culture while providing attractive development opportunities for nationals.
Mahmoud Haj Hussein, DHL Express’ Qatar Country Manager, said:
DHL Express has a long and strong relationship with Qatar and our commitment goes beyond that of investing in the logistics infrastructure of the country. We are always looking for ways to expand our work force in Qatar and are continuously investing in training and development of our employees so that they become experts and spokespeople for the logistics industry in the region.
The 25 World’s Best Workplaces ranking credited DHL in particular for three notable strengths: Impartiality – awarding promotions on merit, to those who best deserve them; Participation – involving people in management decisions that affect their jobs or work environment; Information – keeping employees informed about important issues and changes.
DHL Express also runs an award-winning engagement programme – Certified International Specialist (CIS) – which enables staff empowerment through knowledge and development. Over 100,000 people have participated in CIS to date, and the global board of management of DHL Express regularly contributes time toward personally facilitating CIS learning sessions for employees of all levels around the world.
More than 10 million employees from 6,600 companies around the globe participated in the survey process for the World’s Best Workplaces list.
