DHL Global Forwarding ranked Great Place to Work

DHL Global Forwarding has been ranked the best place to work by Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm that assesses the work experience of employees through their certification program. 
 
DHL’s key markets in the region – including the UAE, Kuwait, KSA, Oman, Qatar and Nigeria have been bestowed with this prestigious accolade, reinforcing the company’s continued commitment to upholding high standards and great culture at the workplace, the company said in a statement.
 
DHL UAE also achieved another feather in its cap; it was bestowed ‘Equal Salary Certification’ by the Equal Salary Foundation for its diversity and gender equality at the workplace. The award was conferred after a rigorous internal audit to assess salaries for men and women. The internationally-recognized Equal Salary Foundation certifies companies that pay male and female employees fairly and demonstrate that top management is committed to fair wage policies. 
 
Eva Mattheeussen, Head of HR DHL Global Forwarding MEA, said: “The diversity of our people is our real strength at DHL, and we are delighted to be recognized by two leading international organizations for our commitment to making the workplace inclusive and engaging for everyone. Our people are the foundation of our business, and we are so proud to have received a neutral and internationally-recognized Equal Pay Certification alongside being named ‘Great Place to Work’. This reinforces that there are no boundaries at DHL as far as gender, nationality, age or personal beliefs are concerned, and it shows our continued passion to excel and raise the bar every year. 
 
She added: “As an employer, we always strive to be passionate, powerful and proud, and live up to our purpose: Connecting People. Improving Lives. This certificate and our inclusion initiatives are ground-breaking enablers to encourage and motivate people to reach their full potential at the workplace.” 
DHL’s culture has been a main driver for its outstanding employee satisfaction, enabling it to win ‘Great Place to Work’ many times before. Its employees are at the heart of the business and the most important driver of global success. DHL has achieved this through a simple strategy that starts with ‘motivated people’, which has enabled it to carve out a distinct culture within the business. DHL continued to focus on job security and staff well-being during challenging times, ensuring employees remained safe, connected, and supported. It also ensures that employees have the best working conditions and the right opportunities to thrive.—TradeArabia News Service
