DHL Express Hong Kong scored 96% on the ‘Trust Index’, reflecting its ongoing commitment in promoting employee well-being, diversity and inclusion, professional development, and a collaborative corporate culture that enables its employees to excel and thrive.

“We are deeply honored to be named the top Best Workplace in Hong Kong.

Empowering People through Training and Development

Talent development is a key focus at DHL Express. For the past 15 years, the company has been running the Certified International Specialist program, an in-house training initiative designed to nurture employees and ensure they continue to grow and evolve in their careers. In Hong Kong, the company offers the “Future Harvest” program, which enables colleagues to have the opportunity to rotate job roles for more exposure and long-term career development.

Creating a diversified and inclusive workplace is a key priority of DHL’s ESG strategy. Every year, DHL Express hosts a “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging” week to foster an inclusive culture that embraces colleagues from diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds.

Transparent Communications

In addition to the annual Great Place to Work® list, DHL employees participate in the annual “Employee Opinion Survey”, which provides a platform for team members to anonymously give valuable feedback on various aspects of the organization. The company also hosts regular small group meetings, which offer direct communication and engagement channels with employees. These discussions provide a more intimate platform for dialogue and allow the company to address specific concerns and suggestions directly. The feedback from these initiatives motivates the company to act and adapt policies to improve employee welfare and development.
