DHL Global Forwarding has again been recognised as the ‘top employer for 2021’ in the Middle East and Africa.
The firm was recognised with the same award in Cameroon, Egypt, Nigeria, and South Africa in 2020.
The Chief Executive Officer of DHL in the Middle East and Africa, Amadou Diallo, said, “2020 was undeniably a tough year as we see economies and of course businesses grapple with multiple headwinds. However, thanks to our tenacity and resilience, I believe we’ve emerged stronger while ensuring that our employees are well and safe.”
The Top Employers Institute programme, which honoured the company, certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their ‘HR Best Practices Survey.’
The survey covers six human resources domains consisting of 20 topics such as “People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being, and Diversity & Inclusion.”
“We are proud to be named ‘Top Employer’ for the second time in a row. Being certified as a top employer showcases our organisation’s dedication to a better world of work and exhibits this through excellent human resources policies and people practices,” Head of Human Resources, DHL Global Forwarding Middle East and Africa, Eva Mattheeussen, stated.
