DHL Global Forwarding, the leading provider of air, ocean and road freight services, is certified Top Employer 2020 in Iraq, Kuwait, Turkey and United Arab Emirates. The certification, awarded by Top Employer Institute, attests to DHL’s achievement in implementing best practices, focused on fostering a positive work environment and encouraging its employees’ personal and professional development.

The HR Best Practice Survey conducted by the Top Employers Institute is designed to identify companies demonstrating a continuous commitment to empowering their employees for a better world of work. Primarily, it looks into key areas within the organization including talent strategy, talent acquisition, learning and development, performance management, leadership development and culture.

We are always open to new ideas and ways to enhance the work culture within our organization, and that extends to our employees’ personal and professional well-being.”

At DHL Global Forwarding, training opportunities and talent development programs are consistently reviewed to ensure that they are the most rigorous, and benchmarked against the requirements of the industry. All employees go through a mandatory DHL Certified Forwarder program upon induction, to ensure that they adhere to the same global standards as colleagues in the global network, abiding by the strictest code of conduct and business principles.

In the Middle East, DHL Global Forwarding has also been running a successful Talent program since 2015, which identifies and provides high-performing non-executives with coaching and mentorship opportunities and project tasks, to prepare them for future leadership roles within the organization.

To ensure emotional well-being and encourage camaraderie among teams, the company also encourages interest and hobby groups where employees get to bond outside of work-related tasks. Diversity in the workforce is also celebrated and there is a “Women in Leadership” program tailored to prepare selected individuals for country leadership positions in the near future.
