FedEx New Zealand Named Best Employer For Tenth Consecutive Year

Aon Best Employer Awards Australia and New Zealand

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, July 31, 2017—FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, has been named a Best Employer in New Zealand by Aon Hewitt.

“We are honoured to be recognised as an employer of choice in New Zealand for the tenth time. This recognition is a testament to the dedicated and hardworking approach of our employees that enables us to deliver value to our customers”, said Kim Garner, managing director, FedEx Express Australasia. “At FedEx, we practice the People-Service-Profit philosophy, as we believe by taking good care of our employees they are able to deliver their best performance and provide value to our customers.”

“We want our employees to feel engaged and continue to learn. This has been the basis of our ongoing commitment to placing employee engagement at the centre of our organisation by holding ongoing leadership development, recognition and training programs. By providing our employees these opportunities, we are ensuring FedEx offers a positive work experience that empowers our employees to grow, learn and achieve.”

The Best Employer accreditation process assesses organisations against four critical areas: employee engagement, effective leadership, aligned employer brand and high performance culture.

The accreditation comprises of three components: employee engagement survey, people practices inventory and the CEO and Human Resource Department (HRD) interview. Once all three components have been successfully completed, organisations will be accredited as Aon Best Employers and are automatically entered into the judging pool for the prestigious Best of the Best award. Judging on Best of the Best is performed by an independent judging panel using the information gathered in the CEO and HRD interview.

In addition to being awarded 2017 Aon Best Employer in Australia and New Zealand, FedEx was also recognized by Aon Hewitt as one of the ‘Best Employers in Asia-Pacific’ in 2016. Earlier this year, the company was ranked 11th in Fortune Magazine’s ‘Most Admired Companies’ survey.
