Recognition for outstanding performance.
The DPD workforce is full of people who deserve an award in recognition of their above-average commitment. Accordingly, on 1 November 2013 we launched an initiative which highlights employees who have shown excellent performance, because it is our conviction that appreciation for outstanding service provides the best motivation. In addition this initiative reinforces the feeling of being part of a team.
Colleagues recommend colleagues.
We are convinced that our employees are in an ideal position to know who provides an outstanding service when it comes to doing calculations, avoiding traffic jams or promoting team spirit. As a result all staff are requested to recommend colleagues who have deserved an award. These recommendations have to be submitted with detailed reasons.
An award as a 'thank you'.
The awards are decided on by a team containing representatives from the HR department, the Works Council and the Corporate Communications section. All award winners receive a 'thank you' voucher worth €20 and are included in the online gallery of award winners on the DPD website. This is our way of showing that we are really proud of their outstanding performance.
