BRAMPTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 9, 2017) - DHL, the world's leading international express services provider, announced today that the Top Employers Institute has officially certified the company as a Top Employer in Canada for 2017. In total, 23 countries within the Americas region have been officially certified as Top Employers. Additionally, DHL also received the Global Top Employer award, which recognizes the company's commitment to support and develop its employees worldwide. DHL is also one of only 10 companies worldwide to earn the Institute's Global Top Employer award, which recognizes the company's commitment to support and develop its employees worldwide.
"Being named a Top Employer in Canada is a testament to the strong belief we have in our people and our support for their professional growth," said Andrew Williams, CEO, DHL Express Canada. "We are thrilled to receive this distinction for the first time this year, and the accomplishment was hard won and well earned. We know from experience that employees who are inspired and fulfilled in the workplace are best able to deliver excellence to customers day in and day out.
