DHL wins Top Employer seal for fourth year

The DHL Express has been certified as a Top Employer in Africa for the fourth consecutive year, at the prestigious Top Employer Africa 2018 certification ceremony, reports ITRealms.

The event ITRealms gathered was held at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg last Thursday, and saw DHL awarded this honour by the Top Employers Institute for the fourth year.

“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,” says the chief executive officer (CEO), DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa, Hennie Heymans.

He also explained that aside being the fourth consecutive 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 has cultivated an insanely customer centric culture across the entire organization, which we see as a critical component of our success. Maintaining this culture across the world has relied heavily on our effective employee engagement programs,” said Heymans.

“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.”

According to Heymans, DHL’s use of employee initiatives and programs, 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.

“This year, we have placed greater emphasis on up-skilling and empowering middle-managers and supervisors – as this rung of leadership is pivotal to the leading and executing of our growth aspirations in the years to come. As we continue to grow, we need every person in the business to understand their role and how to execute it efficiently. After all, the role of supervisors and middle-managers is to build trust and inspire great performance,” Heymans said.
