DHL KSA ‘best place to work’ in Saudi Arabia

DHL Saudi Arabia has been recognized as the “best place to work” in Saudi Arabia in 2018 by a survey undertaken by the American Institute “Best Places to Work.” The initiative conducts surveys that collect employee-provided information on companies in 60 countries around the world and then evaluates them on a country-by-country basis. 

What makes this achievement outstanding is that DHL was ranked first among other top companies that were awarded the “Best Places to Work” certification.

“This recognition is not just an award but a testament to employee satisfaction at DHL Saudi Arabia,” said Faysal El-Hajjami, country general manager. “We are very proud to be named as the ‘best place to work’ in Saudi Arabia, especially as it is based on the assessments of our own workforce in comparison with others in the Kingdom.”

El-Hajjami said the award is a reflection of the efforts put into DHL Arabia’s strategic plan to become the “employer of choice” in Saudi Arabia through the implementation of a well-structured motivation program designed to empower employees and engage their hearts and minds in providing extraordinary service to its customers at every step of the supply chain.

Participating companies agree to conduct the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction survey that asks 36 questions across eight areas, including leadership, compensation and benefits, corporate social responsibility, employee engagement, personal growth, HR practices and the workplace. The HR assessment presents 154 questions across six categories, including information about the company, HR practices, personal growth, engagement, well-being and leadership. 

The initiative provides companies an opportunity to learn more about the engagement and satisfaction of their employees while ultimately celebrating companies whose employees say they are engaged in their work and feel connected to their place of employment.

DHL is a leading global brand in the logistics industry. Its portfolio of services include national and international parcel delivery, e-commerce shipping and fulfillment solutions, international express, road, air and ocean transport, and industrial supply chain management. “With about 350,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, DHL connects people and businesses securely and reliably, enabling global trade flows,” a press statement said. 

The “Best Places To Work” program certifies and recognizes leading workplaces in many countries including leading programs in Africa, Europe, Middle East and Asia. The program focuses on eight workplace factors including workplace culture, opportunities for growth and overall employee satisfaction with the company’s people practices. An HR audit is also conducted to examine HR practices within the organization.
