At DHL Express, performance management is an ongoing process that involves two-way communication between employees and their managers. All employees at DHL participate in this process, which aims to provide them with a clear understanding of the company’s vision, values, and business goals. Additionally, it allows each employee to actively contribute to achieving company goals, receive and provide feedback, and communicate with their manager regularly.

The Fit for Work, Fit for Life program is also undertaken annually and is made available to every employee worldwide. The program is oriented around the four key sources of energy that contribute to a person’s overall sense of wellbeing: physical, emotional, mental, and personal.
