DHL Freight Is a Great Place to Work!

A successful company depends on motivated employees. We do everything we can to offer the people who work for us an ideal work environment, a “Great Place to Work”. A survey conducted as part of the Great Place to Work® Trust IndexTMhas now shown just how successful we are: DHL Freight has been awarded the Great Place to Work® certificate – in 17 countries!

Trust as the Basis for a Good Working Relationship

Without mutual trust between employers and employees, there can be no work environment in which all employees can contribute and develop according to their individual needs and skills. As an employer, we want to provide a trusting working environment and a fulfilling and secure job. But what do the people who work for DHL Freight themselves have to say?

From May 2nd to 23rd, we invited our employees worldwide to take part in the Great Place to Work® Trust IndexTM survey. The Trust IndexTM measures the level of trust employees experience in their workplace. It is an anonymous survey. This anonymity ensures that feedback is honest and thus provides a reliable picture of workplace culture.


Great Place to Work®

Great Place to Work® is an international research and consulting organization that helps companies assess and improve their workplace culture. Great Place to Work® evaluates a company’s workplace culture by conducting anonymous employee surveys and analyzing human resources practices. Each year, outstanding employers are awarded the Great Place to Work® certificate.

Die Trust IndexTM survey consists of 60 statements measured on a special scale, divided into five dimensions of trust:

  • Credibility
  • Respect
  • Fairness
  • Pride
  • Camaraderie

DHL Freight locations in 17 countries around the world participated in the survey. Thousands of our colleagues took the opportunity to share their thoughts on working at DHL Freight and how they perceive us as an employer.

DHL Freight Is Certified as a Great Place to Work in these Countries

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded Great Place to Work® certification in all 17 participating countries after the evaluation of the Trust IndexTM survey:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Estonia
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Slovakia
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom

This award is of special value to us because the assessment is not conducted by external evaluators, but by DHL Freight employees themselves. Congratulations to all the people who work for us and have created a great working culture where everyone can thrive and feel they belong.
