Worldwide Express Named One of Top 10 Coolest Companies to Work for in Dallas/Fort Worth CEO David Kiger discusses what it takes to become one of DFW's coolest companies
DALLAS, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently, Worldwide Express, a Dallas-based global package and freight shipping firm, was named one of the top 10 coolest companies to work for in Dallas-Fort Worth by O.C. Tanner, an HR consulting and services company that develops employee recognition and rewards programs.
"Offering excellent benefits, generous bonuses, rapid advancement, a great corporate culture, and top-notch training, Worldwide Express is a company with coolness to spare," the company stated on its website, ranking Worldwide Express alongside companies such as Southwest Airlines and Brinker International.
Worldwide Express is a frequent recipient of honors for its programs that encourage rapid advancement, particularly for early-career sales associates. Glassdoor recently ranked the firm as the No. 1 company in America for career advancement.
"Far too often, companies will focus more on their product, leaving the sales associates to fend for themselves," said David Kiger, CEO and founder of Worldwide Express. "That is not how we operate. We focus intently on training and development, as well as ensuring that associates have great logistic and shipping services to sell and support. One part cannot exist without the other."
Worldwide Express, founded in 1995, is among the nation's largest resellers of UPS® services to small and midsize businesses and one of the most rapidly growing non-asset based providers of transportation services.
"If we fail to provide good services to sell, then all the training will be useless," says Kiger. "However, if we give our associates a great product to sell but provide lackluster training, we as a company will have failed them. Focusing our efforts on both will not only ensure the success of the associate but of the company as a whole."
Worldwide Express' training and development program includes new-hire training for each sales and account management associate. The program features courses that enable associates to learn advanced skills and network with their peers. Additionally, management training shows local leaders how to recruit and develop talent, and to create business plans for their offices.
