KSA and Bahrain, March 19th, 2012 – TNT Express has maintained its Investors in People (IiP) award for continued investment in employee excellence. The certificate was awarded to TNT SAB Express in Saudi Arabia as well as in Bahrain.
TNT Express Middle East has fully embraced the Investors in People philosophy and, as a result, has successfully recognised the potential of its workforce and improved its bottom line and overall performance.
“In the service industry people are our product and our ethos is that employees are central to the success of our organization, it is vital that they are skilled, flexible and motivated. This award is a reiteration to our commitment to employee development” commented Mark Woodcock, Country General Manager for TNT SAB Express and TNT Express Bahrain.
The company was the first in the world to gain global IiP accreditation back in 1994, a position it has maintained for the past 17 years, and the first to win the famous IiP ‘laurels’ in the express delivery sector.
“Investors in People (IiP) sets minimum standards for continuous operational performance through management and employee development. Living up to the IiP standard ensures that TNT Express employees receive the necessary development opportunities they need to be successful and thus create value for the business. This manifests itself through improved and effective communication, teamwork and individual coaching,” added Woodcock.
