“People-Service-Profit” Philosophy Leads Shipping and Logistics Industry
Mississauga, Ontario, Oct 20, 2011— FedEx Express Canada, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX), has been named by Aon Hewitt and MacLean’s magazine as a Top Ten Best Employer in Canada. This achievement marks the highest ranking ever for FedEx Express Canada and is the highest ranking of any company in the shipping and logistics industry.
“FedEx is built on three simple words: People, Service, Profit,” said Lisa Lisson, president of FedEx Express Canada. “We believe that in order to deliver outstanding service and to generate sound profits, you first need great people. “The fact that we are in the Top 10 is as much a testament to our 6000-strong team as it is a statement of the kind of employer we strive to be. On behalf of all employees at FedEx Express Canada, thank you to MacLean’s and their partners for this distinguished honour.”
FedEx Express Canada is ranked 10th on the list of Canada’s best employers, among a field of 261 companies.
