DHL Express Employee of the Year Awards

The DHL Express Employee of the Year (EOY) programme celebrates the achievements of employees worldwide who have best demonstrated the company’s core values – ‘Best every day’ and ‘As one’ – in their everyday work.

In 2016, we were appointed to design and run regional events in Dubai, Cape Town and Athens. Each event included a Corporate Social Responsibility component, allowing winners to give something back to the event location.

Producing and delivering three bespoke events back-to-back was a major feat of planning, logistics and creativity. Each included team-building activities, a CSR project, different options for activities and relaxation, and specific dietary and cultural requirements. We also had to coordinate with the DHL senior management and CEO, who not only attended all the events, but also needed to sign certificates and write personal messages of congratulation for the winners along the way.

Our CSR activities saw DHL donating 17 bicycles to deserving families in Jordan, 476 pairs of school shoes to Project Playground in South Africa, and tents and equipment to 20 Syrian refugee families in Athens.


Thanks again for an unforgettable experiences with all the EOY events I have worked on with you’
