DHL Express tops the Large category of the Philippines’ Best WorkplacesTM 2022. With 99% of employees saying that the logistics company is a great workplace, DHL Express demonstrates its continued commitment to its people-first culture. The company has held the number 1 spot as Philippines Best Workplaces™ for two consecutive years.

“DHL Express’ people-first culture is anchored to its purpose of ‘Connecting people, improving lives.’ Their people practices are best-in-class as those were created in response to their employees’ changing needs, such as the focus on the employees and their families’ safety and well-being,” said Antoinette Talosig, Managing Partner, Great Place to Work® Philippines and Principal Consultant of Great Place to Work® ASEAN

DHL Express Tops the List of Best Workplaces in the Philippines for the Second Year in a Row

DHL Express’ Focus strategy is key to its success. The strategy saw the company shift its purpose towards motivating first the people working with them. Since implementing the Focus strategy in 2009, DHL Express has consistently put its employees’ needs first. And despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, DHL Express Philippines topped the 2021 and 2022 lists. 

“At DHL, we believe that our highly motivated people are our core strength—the first pillar of our success. Therefore, it is our goal to provide them with the supportive working environment that they deserve,” said Nigel Lockett, country manager, DHL Express Philippines. “We always adhere to our people-first, safety-first philosophy—safeguarding the well-being of our workforce while taking care of our business. We believe we cannot be a great place to work without being a safe place to work.” 

“It takes a lot to create a great workplace culture, but sustaining it requires significant efforts from the company and its leaders, especially during these challenging times. As DHL Express continues to hold the number 1 spot in the Philippines’ Best WorkplacesTM list for the second consecutive year, we see that they are continuously striving to do even better. The connection between DHL Express’ leaders and their employees is remarkable and worth emulating by other leaders who also aspire to have a positive impact on their employees’ lives,” Antoinette said.
