Targeted vocational training and career support for young people with disabilities, equal opportunity for employees with disabilities and disability-friendly workplace solutions are core components of Deutsche Post DHL’s corporate culture. On the occasion of this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the world’s leading postal and logistics company can look back on many years of disability inclusion for employees, as an integral part of its human resource policy. Today the Group employs more than 14,000 persons with disabilities in Germany alone. 

“We want to give people with disabilities, wherever possible, equal opportunity to take an active part in working life at all of our locations, and we make sure to share our knowledge and experience developing disability-friendly workplace solutions across the Group,” says Melanie Kreis, Board Member for Human Resources at Deutsche Post DHL. “With a share of 8.7% for employees with disabilities we are well above the national average in Germany’s private sector, but we don’t plan to stop here.
