BONN: October 18, 2018. DHL Express has moved up two places to finish sixth on the 2018 Top 25 Great Place to Work/Fortune Magazine index. It is the only transportation company to be included.

Every year, Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, assesses the work experience of employees through its certification programme. Top of the list this year was IT company Salesforce followed by Hilton, Mars, Intuit and the Swiss-based professional services Adecco Group.

“At DHL Express, we build our business strategy around our motivated people”, says DHL Express CEO Ken Allen. “We believe that employee motivation directly results in customer satisfaction and loyalty which brings business success. Our more than 100,000 employees are the biggest asset we have. This is why it is amazing to see that our investment in our people shows a sustainable impact.”

DHL Great Place to WorkOver 7,000 organizations participated in the survey process, representing 12 million employees worldwide. The assessment is based on the core criterion of trust and analyses the relationship of employees with management, other employees and to their jobs.

“Congratulations to the World’s Best workplaces. It is a big challenge to build a high-trust culture that is great for employees in many countries across the globe,” noted Great Place to Work CEO Michael Bush. “These organisations have bold leaders who have risen to the challenge - they are the vanguard showing millions of organizations worldwide that is possible and desirable to create a great place to work for all.”

Apparently one of the places is based at Leipzig-Halle airport, where DHL has a major hub and sort centre. The airport is budgeting €250 million to expand taxiways and an apron area that will total 67 hectares. The expansion is rnecessary due to the increase in DHL Express volume that has reached 350,000 pieces a night.

The parking area was opened in 2007 and expanded in 2010 to accommodate 60 aircraft. if approved by the State of Saxony, the new extension would provide space for 36 more airplanes, including the A330 freighter.

“The long-term commitment by DHL at Leipzig/Halle Airport was the crucial factor in ensuring that the airport would become an airfreight and logistics site of European significance and a growth engine for the Central German region,” explained airport managing director Johannes Jähn.

“The fact that we can now deliberately tap into existing reserve space is a significant advantage at our airport site and this forms the basis for growth that meets demand. As with previous expansion projects, we’ve not only kept our eye on the development of the airport as an air traffic and logistics site in our planning work, but also the extensive protection of people and the natural environment,” he added.
