Plantation, Fla., February 28, 2017: DHL, the world’s leading international express services provider, announced today that the Top Employers Institute has officially certified the company as a Top Employer in the United States for 2017. Additionally, DHL is one of only ten companies worldwide to earn the Institute’s Global Top Employer award, which recognizes the company’s commitment to support and develop its employees worldwide.

This is the third consecutive year that DHL Express in the U.S. has received the certification.

“We are exceptionally proud to have been recognized by the Top Employers Institute for providing employees the programs, tools and leadership required to help them thrive and unlock their true potential,” said Greg Hewitt, CEO of DHL Express U.S. “Employees who are inspired and engaged in the workplace are best able to deliver excellence to customers day in and day out.”

Top Employers must provide the highest standards of employee offerings and a forward-thinking human resources environment. Certification is a rigorous process. An independent audit agency reviews company programs in areas including talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession planning, compensation and benefits, and culture.

“DHL has been certified in various regions throughout the world and is a perfect example of a company who has harmonized its operations in a way which has not only benefited its employees but also its operational efficiency on a global scale,” said David Plink, CEO, Top Employers Institute.

In the DHL Americas region, the United States, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, three countries in the Caribbean and 16 within Central and South America (CSA) received the Top Employer certification in 2017.
