The best company to work for in Asia-Pacific


DHL Express once again shows why it is a leader in creating a great place to work for all employees. It was named a 2018 Top Employer for Asia Pacific as well as eight countries in the region: Australia, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand by the Top Employers Institute, a global certification company.

At the awards dinner, DHL Express received top honours along with Amway, BSH Home Appliances, Dimension Data, JTI, Merck, Orange Business Services, Saint-Gobain, Sabic, Takeda, Technip, Tata Consultancy Services. The regional certification recognises these employers commitment for their employees.

In 2017, DHL Express received a total of 49 awards for its workplace and corporate culture in Asia Pacific, including Hong Kong’s great workplaces of 2017 and named one of the top 8 employers Malaysians want to work with.

It is not just the natural lighting, ergonomic furniture and live plants at DHL Express’ office that makes it one of the best workplaces in Asia but its focus on employment practices, talent development and workplace culture built on respect, recognition and equal opportunities.

“The DHL culture is built on the two R’s – Respect and Results. When we value our employees and provide them with opportunities to achieve, we’re able to deliver the world-class results that our customers rely on to grow their businesses,” said DHL Express Asia Pacific CEO Ken Lee in a press release. “It is an honour to be acknowledged as a leading employer and an excellent workplace in Asia Pacific once again, and a testament to the hard work and effort that all our employees invest in really making DHL Express a byword for excellence.”

DHL Express was also named as "Best Employer for Women in the Workplace" in South Korea and Taiwan, by human capital firm Aon Hewitt.

“Diversity in leadership and the workplace help us better understand the full range of our customers’ needs and stories – resulting in more effective service for their businesses,” said DHL Express Asia Pacific Human Resources Senior Vice President A. Mateen in a statement. “Thanks to a strong diversity management framework in place, coupled with comprehensive feedback from our annual Employee Opinion Survey, we’ve established a workplace culture where everyone has not only a voice but also the opportunity to grow to their full potential.”
