OAKLAND, CA: Great Place to Work (GPTW) has published its 2021 top 25 best workplaces based on the opinions of 19.8 million employees from 10,000 companies in 106 countries worldwide.
DHL Express came first followed by Cisco, Hilton, AbbVie, Salesforce, 3M, SC Johnson, Amgen, SAP and Roche.
To be considered as finalists these companies must have appeared on at least five ‘Best Workplaces’ in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Africa, North America or Australia.
Rounding out the new list in descending order are Hilti AG, EY, SAS, AT&T Direct TV, Stryker, Novartis, Cadence, Novo Nordisk, The Adecco Group, Mercado Libre, Adobe, American Express, Atlassian, Santander and Teleperformance.
According to GPTW, over 90 percent of their employees globally said they have a sense of pride in their work, that management is honest and ethical, and that they feel good about the ways their company contributes to the local community.
“In a global workforce, alignment is everything, and these companies are fortifying their culture around the world — a nearly impossible feat,” noted GPTW CEO Michael Bush. “Even when tested by the pandemic, these companies recognize sub-communities in each region and their leaders carry an equitable employee experience across cultures.”
For DHL, the confidential survey assessed employee experience based on degrees of fairness, credibility, respect, pride, camaraderie and programmes that reinforce company culture. “DHL Express has proven that when you deliver for your people, they deliver for your customers,” added Bush.
Earlier this month parent company Deutsche Post DHL confirmed what happens to a company with a customer satisfaction rate of 94 percent by announcing a record third quarter EBIT of €1.765 billion and a nine-month result of €5.76 billion - that also included a staff bonus of €179 million.
“In the first nine months of the current year, we have already exceeded previous year’s full-year result,” said CEO Frank Appel. “We are now intensively preparing ourselves for potential record breaking shipment volumes in the coming weeks and have deliberately built up capacity in the third quarter, in order to be able to offer our customers continued high quality service.”
Obviously a great place to work.
