As a top employer, DB recruits and retains qualified employees who are enthusiastic about their work for their company and their customers.

We are convinced that a company’s success means more than just economic performance. That’s why we want to strike a balance between economic, social and environmental pillars.

Our social responsibility goes beyond being an attractive employer. We want to be a recognized member of society and express our commitment to society by supporting social projects.

Demographic change and growing demand for qualified employees make it clear how strategically important it is to recruit and retain employees for the future success of DB Schenker and the DB Group.


Employee retention
DB Schenker’s employees are its most important asset. We can only maintain our market success if we have motivated and qualified employees among our ranks. DB Schenker’s successful employee retention efforts are backed up by three key factors: high customer satisfaction, sustainable staff development and a strong corporate culture.
Strong, professional human resources management helps us keep employees over the long term. That’s why we work consistently to further improve employee satisfaction. We set clear satisfaction goals and regularly evaluate ourselves using worldwide employee surveys.

We have made sustainable human resources development at our company a clear goal.
We count on our employees’ qualifications and the systematic development of our experts and executives. Moreover, we aim to make the professional development of our employees even more flexible to better fit to their own individual professional and life phases.

In addition to successful human resources management initiatives, a strong corporate culture is a prerequisite for dedicated and satisfied employees, and thus the foundation for long-term success. The international nature of DB Schenker presents a challenge in that we must integrate a variety of cultures and create a common identity. To us, it is important that we create a culture in which employees from diverse backgrounds feel at home and work together to achieve our goals and visions.


Employee recruitment
In addition to employee retention, professional human resources recruitment is an absolute necessity. DB Schenker has set out to build a reputation as one of the most attractive employers in the transportation and logistics industry. In addition to offering attractive training and apprentice programs, DB Schenker must boost its activities for recruiting qualified and motivated employees. To do so, DB Schenker Australia builds relationships with education providers and communities to establish a robust talent pipeline, ensuring a supply of talent into our future.
