FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), and the world’s largest express transportation company, was recently conferred the maiden Hall of Fame Award in Malaysia by Kincentric, fomerly known as the Aon Hewitt Best Employers Award. A landmark achievement, the award recognizes FedEx Express Malaysia for being named Best Employer 10 consecutive times and its success with building an employee-centered workplace environment.
“We are truly honored to receive this recognition from Kincentric. It is major accolade for all of us at FedEx Express Malaysia, further reinforcing our People-First philosophy and Purple Promise to make every customer experience outstanding. At FedEx, we have built a productive work environment around open dialogue among team members and continuous improvement to ensure that employees are empowered to excel further,” said S.C. Chong, managing director, FedEx Express Malaysia.
This has been a guiding philosophy for 46 years since FedEx founder, chairman and CEO, Frederick W Smith, began the company in 1973.
At its core, FedEx aims to create a positive working environment for employees, leading to high service quality to customers, which in turn leads to more customers using FedEx products and services. This is aligned with the global goal to create more possibilities and connectivity for people and business around the world.
In addition to being recognized as Kincentric’s Best Employer in Malaysia 10 consecutive times, FedEx was also recognized as one of the “Best Employers in Asia-Pacific” in 2016 and 2017.
