Top Employers Institute is an independent HR certification company that assesses organisations’ HR policies across the entire HR value chain. DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has been participating in the Top Employer certification for the past 9 years.
"Being recognised as the most certified employer in Africa for 2023 is absolutely incredible, and really affirms that the direction we are taking for our people is the right one. We work hard to ensure that our HR practices are people-centric, in that we make decisions that will enable them to thrive, both in their professional and personal lives," says Paul Clegg, VP of human resources for DHL Express SSA.
The Institute particularly recognised DHL’s strong performance in the areas of values, business strategy, ethics and integrity.
"We are extremely proud that an independent body of this calibre has recognised our efforts. We place our people at the heart of our business, and our main goal is to ensure that our people policies support our goal of ensuring our employees have their best day every day," concludes Clegg.
