    DHL Express, the world's leading international express provider, has ranked 2nd globally on the World’s Best Workplaces 2020 list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune!  DHL Express Egypt has earned the right to be recognized as a Great Place to Work®-Certified company in Egypt! The Great Place to Work is considered THE global authority on workplace culture, being the only company culture award that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated.


    DHL Express Egypt was nominated this year by the parent global group, as a recognition for achieving high employee engagement that goes beyond 90% over the past three years during the annual employee opinion survey.


    Award recipients are selected from companies that appear on Fortune’s annual list of the 100 best companies to work for, the best 100 workplaces for women, the 100 best workplaces for diversity, and the 150 best small and medium companies to work for.

    To achieve recognition through the Great Place to Work, DHL Express was assessed according to two indexes, most importantly the Trust Index, which measures the work environment suitability for productivity from employee perspective across five main indices: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Price, and Camaraderie.

    Ahmed ElFangary, DHL Express’ Egypt Country Manager, said: “DHL Express top asset is 350,000 employees in 220 countries around the world, which is why we strive to foster an environment supported by a culture of trust, transparency, and development.

    Our goal is not only to be one of the world’s leading international express provider but rather to do so while focusing on our employees and the practices we put into place to become the Employer of Choice.”


    “DHL motivates people by committing to engaging, empowering, and supporting a safe environment that maximizes productivity. Since the covid-19 pandemic spread to Egypt in 2020, office staff were encouraged to work from home while our frontline heroes, were taken care of and their safety was ensured by proving PPE.

    We also launched our first-ever virtual Employee Appreciation Week in June 2020, which included interactive sessions, Fit for Work/Fit for Life modules, and fun celebrations with music and dancing, while recognizing outstanding team members and their accomplishments to the company,” he added.

    Lamiaa El Sadat, DHL Express Egypt HR Director, congratulated her team and the company for being a Great Place to work for All identities and All people. She added: “At DHL Express Egypt, we are always actively working to be an Employer of Choice, where everyone feels motivated, can add value and is able to have their Best Day Every Day. Great people make their workplaces great.


    I commit to always do my best, so DHL remains a Great Place to Work, not for few, not for some, but for All”.


    To deliver the best work experience for all employees, the journey of DHL Express begins with recruitment. DHL recruitment teams are always on the lookout for new promising hires to ensure a never-drying talent pool. New hires are introduced to the wide advancement opportunities, learning, and development programs offered by DHL in a unique, engaging, and social environment through in-house workshops introducing the foundational CIS course in just two days.


    At DHL, management is kept involved by reviewing the content and design at board meetings and holding annual events that bring together all employees from around the world. DHL also offers employees a performance-based, competitive remuneration including additional benefits designed to improve the work-life balance, a broad range of development opportunities, and the chance to make a real difference with innovative business ideas or suggestions for improving the working environment.


    “But most importantly, we listen. DHL measures employee engagement and leadership qualities in our annual Group-wide Employee Opinion Survey. This acts as a pulse check to ensures that our employee remain an integral part of DHL Express and live up to the high standards set by the company and expected by all its clients worldwide,” ElFangary said.
