FedEx Express named One of the Best Companies to Work for in the UAE

Posted 9 March 2017 · Add Comment

FedEx Express is celebrating seven years as one of the best companies to work for in the UAE. This year, FedEx Express has been ranked eighth, cementing its position as an employer of choice in the UAE.

 “It is a true honour to be the recipient of the Great Place to Work Institute accolade for the seventh consecutive year,” said David Ross, regional president of FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa. “Creating a nurturing and inclusive work environment is a top priority at FedEx. We believe in providing our team members with the tools they need to achieve their fullest potential. Our people’s individual and collaborative successes are symbiotic with our company’s growth.”

Every year, the Great Place to Work Institute ranks the UAE’s top Great Places to Work based on confidential feedback from employees and a management process audit.  A significant part of this result comes from the commitment FedEx makes to its team members.

“Since joining FedEx in 2005 as a part-time Courier, not only was I surrounded by brilliant, friendly and talented people, but I was also provided many opportunities for personal and professional development,” said Asghar Khan, manager of operations at FedEx Express, based in Abu Dhabi.  “At FedEx, every team member plays a valuable role in ensuring that we ‘hit the right note’ with our customers through delivery of excellent and on-time solutions.  We honour a positive ‘can-do’ attitude and willingness to ‘think outside the box’ because we know these vital skills yield innovative solutions.  We embrace new team members and provide them with support and opportunities for growth.”

Debbie D’Mello, a hub service agent at FedEx Express, based in Dubai added: “One can thrive and grow at FedEx. I am learning to work with people of different backgrounds and appreciate this mix of cultures.  Throughout my eight years with the company, I have been exposed to many growth opportunities, allowing me to gain so much from my professional experience.”
