FedEx Express Named One of TAFEP Exemplary Employers in Singapore

April 9, 2010

 

SINGAPORE—FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, has been named one of the winners at the inaugural TAFEP Exemplary Employer awards held at the Conference of Fair Employment Practices yesterday.

Organised by the Tripartite Alliance for Fair Employment Practices (TAFEP), nominees of the award were assessed according to a list of criteria including fair hiring and recruitment practices, proactive efforts to recruit and support the employment of a diverse workforce, and support from senior management. The winners were selected by a judging panel comprising of industry experts as well as TAFEP members.

The award recognises exemplary organisations that have effectively implemented progressive and fair employment practices in Singapore. By showcasing these exemplary employers, TAFEP hopes to inspire other organisations to adopt fair and merit-based employment practices.

“At FedEx, we believe the fundamental success of our business is our people. Fair employment practices are part of FedEx DNA because our founding philosophy is based on “People-Service-Profit” or PSP, which simply means putting our people first,” said Clifton Chua, Managing Director, FedEx Express Singapore.

“The FedEx culture is one that fosters diversity and gender equality, and provides our employees with equal opportunity to excel. We believe that being a good and fair employer is about creating a culture and setting up systems to endure integrity. And that means that the management must consistently ‘walk the talk’ in real, tangible ways to continue building employees’ trust,” he added.

Globally, FedEx has been honored as one of Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 12 of the past 13 years. Hewitt Associates, a leading US-based human resources firm, consistently ranks FedEx as one of its “Top 10 Employers” in Singapore and Asia.
