DPD wins “Best Place to Work” gong

Dwain McDonald DPD CEODPD has been named as one of the top 25 Sunday Times ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’.

And that’s a notable achievement in an industry that doesn’t stand out as one that treats staff with great respect or remuneration.

The list is based on employee opinions on how the company, supports wellbeing in the workplace, gives something back to society, shows strong leadership and teaming, provides opportunities for personal growth, and offers fair pay and benefits.

The Sunday Times reports said: “DPD understands it needs to retain and develop the most customer centric people in their industry and they’ve wow’ed us with how they’ve achieved it.”

DPD CEO Dwain McDonald said: “What we’ve achieved in the last year is quite extraordinary and way beyond my expectations. The Queen’s Award and now this have just moved us into a different league altogether. A lot of people have recognised the fact that we have been growing rapidly. But it is just as important to me that we’re growing the right way – by investing in our network, innovating with market leading technology and by nurturing and developing our people. To make the Sunday Times ‘best places to work’ list is a fantastic validation of this ethos.
