DHL Express MENA has been officially recognised as the best company to work for in the Middle East for 2020, by leading global workplace culture authority Great Place to Work® Middle East. The global logistics giant took the winning spot in the top 50 Middle East Best Workplaces list which represented local, regional and international private and public entities operating in this region, covering a wide industry base from logistics and technology to finance, media, fashion, FMCG, hospitality, healthcare and manufacturing.
The Best Workplaces annual benchmarking study assesses the level of credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie within an organisation, with the majority of the score based on the confidential feedback of their employees, while the remaining score is taken from an audit of management and HR practices.
“Being recognised as the Best Workplace in the Middle East is a great achievement for DHL and one we are all collectively proud of”, commented Henry Fares, VP HR DHL Express MENA. “DHL places tremendous importance on maintaining a harmonious work culture that is powered by mutual trust, highly motivated people driven by the purpose of “Connecting people, improving lives and a spirit of innovation and comradeship. Our HR strategy has consistently prioritised a happy, healthy workplace where people are eager to come to work every day; we have sought to inspire a conducive atmosphere where each and every DHL employee, regardless of where they stand in the company or across our extensive network, have access to the right resources and are further encouraged by an enabling work environment to thrive within the organisation. I dedicate this award to all the DHL employees who make this place the best company to work for.”

To be considered in the list, organizations have to meet the Great Place to Work®-Certified standard and with a minimum score of 85% percent based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and ability to reach their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do.
