Having a Best Day, Every Day

With the DHL mantra to ensure that all its employees have the best day, every day and the tag line of "When you are happy and you know it, share your story", the campaign invited employees to share their stories, memories and experiences that make their every day more engaging, challenging, interesting or rewarding for them.



Group Study

Just like the way one used to give exams with other students at the same time, DHL Express brings its employees together to learn at the same time. The ‘United Learning Day’ (ULD) is a unique L&D initiative where employees at all levels come together and complete their Individual Development Programs (IDPs) by logging into an e-portal at the same time. After completing their respective assignments, the employees gather again for a Peer-to-Peer knowledge sharing session, thereby celebrating the spirit of learning and development with fellow employees.

This is my home. What I am today is because of the organization. My organization is my identity. I am extremely proud of my organization.
