FedEx Express Named Among Top Five of the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces
The Great Place to Work® Institute has announced that FedEx Express, an operating company of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), has been named as one of the top five global companies to work for in its inaugural ranking of the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces. FedEx was selected for the recognition from among the 350 multinational companies in 45 countries that were included in Great Place to Work lists from around the world in 2010 and 2011.
“FedEx Express is honored to be recognized as a top company to work for globally,” said Jerry Tims, vice president of Human Resources for the FedEx Express EMEA region. “In a region as diverse as EMEA, our people are the common denominator and differentiator. We firmly believe that fostering a great place to work is key to any successful business, and this is why we focus on our people first: satisfied employees provide outstanding experiences for our customers.”
In EMEA, FedEx Express employs more than 15,260 team members. In 2011 the company was included in Great Place to Work lists in Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates.
To qualify for the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces List, companies must appear on at least five national Great Place to Work lists and have at least 5,000 employees worldwide. The selection process that assessed qualified companies weighed heavily the responses to the Great Place to Work® Trust Index®, an employee survey that measures level of trust within an organization, and the Great Place to Work® Culture Audit©, a management questionnaire that analyzes a company’s HR practices and policies.
FedEx has long implemented a number of policies and programs that support its strong employee culture, while allowing each region and country in which FedEx operates the autonomy to tailor its workplace environment to best fit its local workforce.
