DACHSER India committed to the principle of equal opportunities
Logistics has been a traditionally male-dominated industry, which used to attract relatively more men than women. In the perception of many, daily working routines mostly include physical work under unfavorable conditions.
However, with technology easing work processes, an increasing number of women are attracted by the logistics industry, while administrative functions have been offering a broad spectrum of opportunities.
The growing number of women in both, the logistics sector and in leadership positions, reflects in DACHSER India as well, where an increasing number of women leaders hold senior management positions. They have taken the responsibility and management of several critical functions across the company.
DACHSER India ensures complete holistic work life balance and believes in all round development, giving all employees respect and space to grow professionally as well as personally. The management at DACHSER takes an active and leading role to make the working environment inclusive, providing flexible work policies and absence of any glass ceiling; which are a few of the most pertinent reasons why women choose to stay and work at DACHSER for years.
