DHL Express Named to Computerworld’s 2014 List of 100 Best Places to Work in Information Technology

DHL, the world’s leading international express shipping company, was named to the 2014 list of IDG Computerworld’s 100 Best Places to Work in Information Technology (IT) for the second consecutive year. It was ranked 5th among large companies evaluated by Computerworld.

In choosing the 2014 winners, Computerworld surveyed DHL Express employees on their satisfaction with training and development programs, compensation, benefits, work-life balance and IT department morale. Computerworld also obtained information from DHL Express management on a range of categories, including average salary and bonus increases, percentage of IT staffers promoted, IT staff turnover rates, training and development, and percentages of women and minorities in IT staff and management positions.

"Our employees are our greatest asset at DHL," said Pablo Ciano, CIO for DHL Express Americas. "So being chosen as one of Computerworld's 'Best Places to Work' for IT professionals - for the second year in a row - is a great honor and an acknowledgement of our commitment to personal and professional development, diversity and innovation."

Employees at DHL Express, operating in more than 220 countries and territories, work and interact with people of diverse cultures and skill sets and provide superlative service to customers in a highly competitive and dynamic business environment. To drive innovation and outstanding customer service, IT staffers are encouraged to stay up-to-date on new IT advances. As part of the company’s development and advancement program, IT employees receive a $5,000 reimbursement each year for new technology certifications or training courses they choose, in addition to two weeks of paid training based on individual career expectations. This initiative provides additional benefits both to the company and to IT employees, by introducing them to new technology and helping them discover new applications for existing technology.

“Hiring the best and brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list,” said Scot Finnie, editor-in-chief of Computerworld. “Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging, business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees.”

DHL Express and its parent company, Deutsche Post DHL, stress personal and professional development, diversity and innovation among all its employees as essential factors in delivering unmatched service to customers worldwide.

The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals published by Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire on company offerings in areas such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld carries out extensive surveys of IT workers at each company evaluated, and their responses factor heavily in determining the final rankings.
