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.
