2012 FedEx Global Citizenship Report

gcr-ev-image.jpeg Today we released our fifth Global Citizenship Report. In the spirit of continuous improvement, this year’s report aligns with the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines.

And, importantly, it is an all-digital and print-on-demand platform again this year.

Work Life Balance in the Modern World

Prior to starting at FedEx in 2009, I had over 18 years of work experience…never before had I heard of work-life balance! Of course, companies I worked for said that they cared about their employees’ happiness and well-being, but there was no follow-through. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that FedEx actually walks the walk.

Like many great places to work, FedEx Office makes it a priority each year to recognize the hard work and success of our team members.

One cluster, or group of stores, and one standalone center are selected based on their record of customer service, team member retention and financial performance. We also honor the top sales team in the nation for their hard work, sales performance and commitment to customers.

I joined FedEx 18 years ago and have had the privilege of visiting company facilities around the world.  Whether I’m in Mumbai, Memphis or Mexico City, I’m always amazed by the above-and-beyond employee spirit that cuts across all the countries we serve.   And it’s because of our employees that many of our international operations are consistently ranked as a best place to work.
