Valuing equal opportunities and diversity

"As a woman in IT and openly out, I experience appreciation, especially from my management. I don't take it for granted, but I know that DHL puts a great deal of importance to the issue of equal opportunities and diversity," says one Gen X IT Specialist from DPDHL in Germany. 

Receiving a lot of support from DHL

"I have received a lot of support from the company, both to perform my tasks and also to reconcile my time with other demands in my personal life. This has been very important to me," says a Gen Z office worker from DHL Global Forwarding in Brazil.

Offering career stability in chaos

"It sounds cliché, but I am proud to work 'in and with DHL'. It is a company that offers us stability in this chaos and there are opportunities for salary improvements. The environment in which we work and the fact that we trust DHL's commitment to keep us employed generates satisfaction," explains a Gen Y frontline worker from DHL Supply Chain in Brazil.

"As an environmentalist working for DPDHL, I have been questioned by my family and friends. When I explain what we are doing in trying to achieve zero emissions, they are impressed. I explain our tree planting project and here in Ireland we have planted 250 trees as part of a zero waste community garden, which I am immensely proud of. I will never stand in the shade of these trees, but a future generation will because of DHL," adds a Baby Boomer Generation office worker from DHL Operations in the UK.
