A workplace where everyone can thrive
DSV promotes a dynamic workplace that fosters inclusivity and diversity. As a global organisation, we have employees from all cultures, religious beliefs, ages and backgrounds, who bring unique skills and expertise to the company. This diversity plays an important role for our continued growth.
We strive to attract, motivate and retain talented people in a culture of respect. We invest in the personal and professional development of our employees by offering a wide variety of global and local training programmes. These cover areas such as leadership, sales, customer service, trainee programmes and much more. This is supported by extensive training offerings, which are available through our own online training platform.
Our employees play an active role in shaping our culture and workplaces. We continuously strive to improve progress on engagement and our annual employee engagement survey provides insight into employee expectations and uses these insights to create even better workplaces for current and future DSV employees. In 2023, DSV demonstrated a high participation rate of 76% in our global engagement survey that was carried out in all DSV countries, covering every employee on our payroll. The latest results showed a favourable score of employees’ overall job satisfaction and motivation which was above global benchmark. Also, on the question on whether our employees would recommend others to seek employment at DSV, we scored above the global average. The average e-NPS for the DSV Group was also positive, achieving 34, which is at the global external benchmark of 34.
Our focus on development builds employee competencies and provides pathways to career success, and we are proud to be continuously recognised as an employer of choice in different regions in the world:
Diversity and inclusion
We believe nurturing and leveraging diversity and inclusion gives us a business advantage in today’s market. We have formalised these beliefs in our Diversity and Inclusion Policy which applies to all employees across DSV, including the Executive Board and the Board of Directors.
Diversity of the Board and Executive Management levels
Our Board of Directors comprises 38% women and 62% men, which we consider a fairly equal gender composition*. Three of our eight board members live in countries other than Denmark and have foreign citizenships.
The gender composition of our Executive Management, comprising the Executive Board, Group Executive Committee and Executive Vice Presidents, is unchanged from last year, characterised by a low female representation. To accelerate an equal gender distribution at the highest management levels, in 2022 the Nomination Committee of the Board of Directors has considered these issues as part of the Executive Board’s longer-term succession planning. Consequently, it has been decided to work towards a target of 40% female representation at Executive Management levels in large Danish companies within the DSV Group in 2030. The development of initiatives to reach this target will continue into 2024.
* Equal gender composition is defined in accordance with guidance from the Danish Business Authorities
