FedEx ranks in top 10 ‘great places to work’
Dubai, February 17, 2014
FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp, said it has been ranked among the top 10 ‘great places to work’ in the UAE.
The ranking of the nation’s top 15 ‘great places to work’ is based on the confidential feedback of employees and an audit of the management process by the Great Place to Work Institute, during its annual study of workplace excellence, said a statement.
David Ross, senior vice-president for the Middle East, India and Africa operations, said: “Being recognised again is a great endorsement of the inspiring workplace environment at FedEx Express that sets us apart.
“Our people are our biggest asset, and we go great lengths to ensure that we provide our extraordinary team, a positive, rewarding work environment that nurtures their personal and professional growth. I dedicate this honor to every team member at FedEx Express in the UAE, who through their enthusiasm and commitment make our company truly a ‘great place to work.’”
FedEx operates on the ‘People-Service-Profit’ (P-S-P) philosophy, which is based on the strong belief that team members come first not just because it is the right thing to do, but because it is good business practice, he said.
The ‘promotion from within’ policy ensures that current team members are considered first for any job openings, as part of the FedEx development and career progression programme.
Globally, about 80 per cent of positions are filled by internal promotions and 75 per cent of managers at FedEx Express entered the company as entry-level team members, couriers or hub handlers, said the statement. - TradeArabia News Service
