AUCKLAND, New Zealand, September 13, 2019 – 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.
“For the twelfth year in a row, we are proud to be recognised as an employer of choice in New Zealand,” said Peter Langley, Vice President, FedEx Express Australasia. “Our commitment to our people is always our first priority, and we are honoured that our dedication has made us an industry leader for so many years.
“The people of FedEx are key to our success,” added Mr Langley. “Our People-Service-Profit philosophy underpins all our work, ensuring a positive workplace culture that values collaboration, high-performance and professional growth, and that keeps our team members engaged and focused on delivering the Purple Promise to make every experience outstanding for our customers.”
The Best Employer certification process assesses organisations against four critical areas: employee engagement, organisational agility, leadership engagement and a talent-focused culture. Organisations must score more than 75% on engagement and at least two of the other areas to be certified.
FedEx Express New Zealand achieved an engagement score of 79% and employees specifically registered high scores in relation to how FedEx New Zealand manages Diversity & Inclusion and Performance Management.
In addition to being awarded the 2019 Aon Best Employer in Australia and New Zealand, FedEx was also recognised by Aon Hewitt as one of the ‘Best Employers in Asia-Pacific’ in 2017. Last year, the company was ranked 10th in Fortune magazine’s ‘World’s Most Admired Companies’ survey.
