DHL Express has been certified as a Top Employer Africa 2018 for the fourth consecutive year by the Top Employers Institute, reports from Johannesburg, South Africa, said last week.
This year, DHL was the only company to be certified as a top employer in 18 markets in Africa, including Angola, Botswana, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Morocco, Nigeria, Namibia, South Africa, Senegal, Uganda and Zambia.
“DHL Express values its employees and strives to make the company a rewarding place to work at. We are proud to have that fact affirmed by Top Employers Institute,” DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa CEO Hennie Heymans said, reacting to the company’s accolade.
“DHL has cultivated an insanely customer centric culture across the entire organisation, which we see as a critical component of our success. Maintaining this culture across the world has relied heavily on our effective employee engagement programmes.”
The Germany-headquartered company said that its use of employee initiatives and programmes, including the company’s Certified International Specialist (CIS) cultural change programme has helped to unlock the potential of the company’s employees across Sub-Saharan Africa.
“It therefore goes without saying that employee motivation and development are important areas of focus for us. We are committed to having a team of high performers who operate in a high performance culture that promotes and drives leadership diversity.”
The Top Employers Institute survey assesses human resource strategy, policy implementation, practices and employee offerings, to reveal whether the company provides exceptional employee conditions, develops talent on all levels and demonstrates leadership through optimising the development of its employees and employee practices.
