July 1, 2008
Vicki Dixon, Acting Learning and Development Manager at FedEx Express, has won the MAN everywoman in Transport and Logistics ‘Industry Trainer of the Year’ Award for her work as an ambassador for the value of workplace learning and development.
Vicki’s award highlights the contributions that women are making within the logistics industry, which has traditionally been perceived as male dominated.
Vicki, who joined FedEx Express from school as a customer service agent 20 years ago, has worked her way up within the company and come to personify FedEx Express’ commitment to training, viewing it as integral to everyone’s career within the organisation.
Vicki has created, developed and promoted many different training programmes to meet FedEx Express business needs and the demands of a diverse employee base throughout the company’s European,
Middle East and African operations.
Vicki designed the Purple Passport to accompany all employees on their journey within FedEx, recording their training to ensure that employees can achieve their career and personal aspirations while working for the organisation.
These programmes have set new standards within the industry with qualifications and certifications that are recognised by governments and undertaken by other company’s in the sector.
FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, offers plenty of opportunity for female employees. Indeed, 36 per cent of senior managers in the
UK are women, 20 per cent of frontline managers are women and 19 per cent of total management are women. These figures are amongst the highest in the industry. UK
