DHL Parcel UK has received Great Place to Work Certification, based on employee feedback through the Great Place to Work Trust Index and details about DHL’s people programs and practices.
From 2020 to 2022, the company invested further in its people with a particular focus on well-being and development. Every single employee goes through a certified e-commerce specialist program as part of their personal development, along with additional training and development programs. To support employee well-being, all colleagues have access to free counseling and support as well as specific training courses aimed at raising awareness about mental health.
Great Place to Work is a global authority on workplace culture and certification signifies employers that are characterized by a trust-based, ‘people first’ workplace culture. The survey covers areas such as manager credibility, fairness, respect, camaraderie, honesty and pride. The certification process provides important information about the current state of the workplace culture, enabling the business to measure, understand and develop its culture further.
Peter Fuller, CEO of DHL Parcel UK, said, “We’re delighted to have been recognized a ‘great place to work’ – it’s a testament to all the efforts of our team over the last five years. Our people are what make our business great so it’s critical that we create an environment where people feel that they belong, where they can develop careers and stay with us for the long term. We plan to use the insights gained from the process to keep improving and continue on our employer of choice journey.”
