Great Place to Work® recognizes DHL Dominican Republic

Press Release

Santo Domingo.- Great Place to Work® Institute Central America and Caribbean and Estrategia & Negocios magazine presented their 2019 Great Place to Work in the Caribbean ranking. This year, DHL Dominican Republic was awarded in two categories: Great Place to Work® in Dominican Republic and Great Place to Work® in the Caribbean.

How are the results measured? An organizational study measures behaviors, practices and work environment. The metrics are obtained through the responses of more than 136,000 employees who are surveyed in Central America and Caribbean, utilizing the Institute’s methodology and application of two tools: Trust Index® and Culture Audit®.

“We are incredibly honored by the Institute’s acknowledgement as it will greatly impact our team and workplace culture,” shared Octavio Fonseca, Country Manager at DHL Dominican Republic. “We are convinced that the success of the organization is due to our people and that is why this certification is so important for us. We strive to work and implement action plans that will better our people and day-to-day operations.”

“This is a true testament of the effort we have invested in making DHL a place where our employees can enjoy coming to work, be appreciated for their invaluable contributions, honest feedback, develop professionally and reach their full potential,” said Christine Nashick, CEO Caribbean and CMO Americas for DHL Express.
