The award was conferred by Top Employers Institute, a global organization recognizing excellence in employee conditions, making this the fifth consecutive year that DHL Express has received the award for Asia Pacific. This further establishes the company as a regional leader in employment practices and talent development, with a workplace culture built on respect, recognition and equal opportunities.
“It is an honor to be acknowledged as a leading employer and an excellent workplace in Asia Pacific once again, and this is a strong testament to the hard work and effort that all our employees invest in harnessing this winning culture in DHL — one that is built on respect and results,” said Ken Lee, CEO, DHL Express Asia Pacific. “We strongly believe that this culture resonates with our employees, who are motivated to give the best to our customers every day. We remain committed to providing the right opportunities for our employees, so they can be best equipped to deliver the world-class results that our customers rely on to grow their businesses.”

This series of training is meant to create a powerful sense of community that enables employees to combine best-in-class product quality with incomparable service excellence.
