DHL grad welcomes logistical challengesNews
A graduate at distribution and logistics company, DHL, welcomes the challenges the industry faces.
DHL is a global distribution and logistics organisation and runs with the help of 340,000 employees worldwide. The distribution and logistics sector is all about efficiency and improving the service on offer, one graduate welcomes these challenges.
Kelly Axe studied Business Studies at Sheffield Hallam before she joined DHL's Graduate Programme in September 2014. She says during her first year at DHL she has working across the supply chain.
"I am currently working as a section manager for a large supermarket customer in the Retail sector," she says.
"I have been managing picking functions, intake management, loading management, motivating employees, dealing with employee queries and problems in regards to grievances, disciplinary meetings and fair treatment."
Some of the challenges Kelly has faced at DHL have been testing.
"Although I enjoy a challenge, there have been several more difficult challenges which I have learned a great deal from," she says. "For instance, working within a strong unionised environment dealing with colleague conflicts, I've learned to remain calm under pressure and ensure I listen carefully to colleagues concerns, showing them a genuine interest in how we can help resolve their issues."
"It is important to get the respect of your employees early on when going in as a Graduate."
