Kuehne + Nagel Ireland awarded the Excellence Through People Standard

Kuehne + Nagel, the global logistics provider, is the first company in the Transport and Logistics industry in Ireland to be awarded the Excellence Through People (ETP) Standard for all its business divisions and sites.

The ETP is Ireland’s national standard for human resource management and a business improvement tool designed to further an organisation’s performance through its people.  Kuehne + Nagel pursued this standard in order to benchmark its human resource activities and to provide a high standard tool for process approval.

In the evaluation process, Kuehne + Nagel’s activities were benchmarked against best practices in the areas of Business Planning, Training & Development, Internal Communications and Recruitment.  Kuehne + Nagel demonstrated innovation and dedication in promoting a culture of continuous improvement across the organisation throughout the assessment. Detailed feedback provided in the audit by employees was also taken into consideration by the assessors when awarding the standard to Kuehne + Nagel.

Marcus Bennett, Managing Director, Kuehne + Nagel Ireland, said: “We are strongly committed to developing our employees and ensuring that we are constantly improving our employee engagement and involvement levels. This highly prestigious human resource management standard recognises the high calibre of standards we already hold and in the future, we want to aim even higher by pursuing further accreditations offered by the ETP”.
