Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 13 December 2023 – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, has been awarded ‘Best Companies to Work for in Asia 2023’ by HR Asia for three years in a row for strong employee engagement within its corporate culture and exemplary human resource management practices. FedEx received a second ‘Asia Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)’ award, honoring the company’s efforts in promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace. In addition, FedEx was also honored with the ‘2023 MY AMCHAM Cares’ award presented by the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) in Malaysia for the fourth consecutive year.

Winners of the HR Asia awards were evaluated based on a set of criteria spanning three categories – leadership and organization, emotional engagement and team dynamics in which team members were asked to rate the company. The HR Asia awards aims at identifying Asia’s employers of choice across thirteen countries/territories in the region. Its purpose is to recognize companies based on HR practices, and also companies that demonstrate high levels of employee engagement coupled by excellent workplace cultures.

“We are privileged to be recognized with these esteemed awards that reflect our dedication to cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace for our team members,” said Tien Long Woon, managing director of FedEx Express Malaysia. “Anchored in our People-first philosophy, we continue to focus on empowering and supporting our team members to create an impact, learn and grow, and spread their wings. As we commemorate our 30th anniversary in Malaysia, these accolades symbolize the enduring commitment and exceptional performance of our team members in creating an environment where they are inspired to deliver the Purple Promise, to make every FedEx experience outstanding and deliver service excellence.”

In addition, FedEx was recognized by AMCHAM Malaysia for its continuous commitment to propelling corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the country. For two years in a row, FedEx received the recognition of ‘Champion Level’ for fostering positive societal impact spanning five key areas: Sustainability, Strategy, Measurability, Communications and Partnerships. A significant part of these initiatives include the FedEx / JA International Trade Challenge, which has benefitted more than 8,600 students for the past fifteen years by nurturing young talents to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset geared toward international trade. FedEx also supports local communities through initiatives such as the vegetable farming program, demonstrating the company’s commitment to sustainability and community well-being as part of the global FedEx Cares initiative. Continuing this momentum, FedEx employees celebrated the company’s 30th year in Malaysia through planting 100 trees in Penang and Johor. This initiative helps preserve Malaysia’s natural heritage and promotes sustainable food practices through the creation of a food forest and seed bank.
