1 DHL

Ev­ery em­ployee at the global lo­gis­tics firm, DHL, re­ceives their own cus­tomised learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment plan. From re­cruit­ment to re­tire­ment, em­ploy­ees are closely aligned with the com­pany’s core val­ues, its busi­ness ob­jec­tives and a mis­sion of in­spir­ing people to give their best, both in and out of the of­fice.

2 Mi­crosoft

Mi­crosoft seeks to have a work-life bal­ance and has a Work-Life Bal­ance Char­ter that the whole team pre­pares and signs to­gether. So the staff have a hand in de­cid­ing and act­ing upon the key is­sues im­pact­ing their work-life bal­ance.

3 Om­ni­com Me­dia Group

OMG also fo­cuses on work-life and the staff voice their opin­ions through OMG’s HR fo­rums. Thus they have their say in com­pany ini­tia­tives, poli­cies, idea gen­er­a­tion, and learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment.

4 Eric­s­son

Eric­s­son en­cour­ages its em­ploy­ees to vol­un­teer to give back to the com­mu­nity. It or­gan­ises vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties to this end. It lis­tens to its em­ploy­ees and uses their feed­back to help shape fu­ture pro­grammes.

5 The One

The One builds on its em­ploy­ees’ emo­tional in­volve­ment, mo­ti­vat­ing and in­spir­ing them on so­cial mis­sions. It makes them feel at home in the of­fice, through health and so­cial pro­grammes and flexi work hours, and cel­e­bra­tions in of­fice.

6 FedEx Ex­press

Staff who go be­yond the job ex­pec­ta­tions to en­sure the cus­tomer’s needs are given the Pur­ple Prom­ise Award.

When We­ber Shand­wick re­cently moved of­fices it made its in-house cre­ative team work as a li­ai­son be­tween staff mem­bers and the de­sign­ers to en­sure ev­ery­thing in the of­fice rep­re­sented the staff – from the plants cho­sen, to the pic­tures on walls.
