The diversity of our employees, our genuine strength

Tim Scharwath, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding, Freight

 IWD 2021

We at DHL are very proud to join International Women’s Day and celebrate the achievements of women, and continue to strive to achieve a gender-balanced company and world.

The culture of our company is built on the two 'Rs' - Respect and Results. The diversity of DHL employees mirrors the diversity of our customers, suppliers, and investors. It enables us to deliver innovative products that make DHL customers successful.

The working world is undergoing a transformation driven by digitalization, automation, and robotics. This allows employees to redefine how, where, and when they work; also in the field of logistics and Freight Forwarding.

At DHL Global Forwarding, Freight we promote an inclusive work environment, guided by mutual respect, openness, honesty, and the spirit of trust and cooperation, to attain the highest possible productivity, creativity, and efficiency. We have a simple policy on diversity: if you can help our business, we want you to join us.

Our Women at DHL Global Forwarding, Freight initiative, connects the employees identifying as women, from all ages and heritages including as well allies. The program is structured under different work streams with the overall aspiration of building a visible pathway for more talented women to join and be promoted to leadership roles. I am very proud of what we have accomplished with this project, with all of these measures we are creating a workplace culture that is inclusive and attractive for women.

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging are part of our organization’s core values and we look forward to continuing to build a great workplace where everyone is welcomed.

Together, at DHL, we #ChooseToChallenge.
