FedEx Express Again Wins ‘Aon’s Best Employer Award’ in Asia Pacific
Global Logistics Giant's People-First Philosophy Nets Prestigious Accolade for Fifth Time
HONG KONG, September 2, 2016 – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, has been named a Best Employer in Asia Pacific in the Aon Best Employers program for the fifth time. A company is recognized as a Best Employer in Asia Pacific if it is named a Best Employer in three or more individual markets in the region. This year, FedEx achieved this in six of the 12 markets in which the program is run, namely Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.
“At FedEx, we believe in empowering people, and this is reflected in our People-Service-Profit corporate philosophy, in which investing in our employees is a fundamental part of our business strategy,” said Karen Reddington, president, FedEx Express Asia Pacific. “I’m delighted that the success of our approach has once again been recognized by Aon’s respected Best Employers Program. We will continue to nurture our regional team and provide every single team member with the right support to reach their full potential.”
The Aon Best Employers program is the most credible study of its kind in Asia Pacific. Four measurable factors are considered in determining whether an organization is a Best Employer: high employee engagement levels; a compelling employer brand; effective leadership and a high performance culture. Information on each of these is gathered via an employee opinion survey, a CEO questionnaire and a people practices inventory. The survey was conducted over a nine-month period in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
FedEx has been consistently recognized as an employer of choice in Asia Pacific and globally. As well as being named a Best Employer in Asia Pacific, the company was ranked eighth in the FORTUNE magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” list in February this year, and first in the delivery industry category. This marked the 16th consecutive year that FedEx had ranked among the top 20 in the list.
