Perks and Programs

We asked FedEx Corporation to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Disclaimer: This review consists of complied information from multiple FedEx companies and not all information is true for every company.
  • Delivering for good: We are proud to use our unparalleled logistics expertise and global reach as a force for good. Ensuring that communities stay connected can be difficult when disasters strike or when nonprofit organizations lack the resources to fulfill their missions. From delivering life-sustaining supplies to providing in-kind shipping for nonprofit agencies, we connect resources to communities in need around the world. When disasters strike, FedEx responds. Team members, including drivers, pilots and operations teams, work around the clock to help deliver supplies, food, medicine and other services to stricken communities. Our networks are often able to quickly reach cut-off communities and local economies while infrastructure recovers. Our operations specialists have the expertise to direct supplies to locations where they are needed most.
  • Delivering results: FedEx is dedicated to transforming lives and economies around the world and in the communities where we live and operate. Our community investment strategy is built on collaborating with trusted NGOs and nonprofit organizations to make meaningful and lasting impacts that align with our corporate priorities. FedEx is committed to investing $200 million in more than 200 communities by 2020. We invest in programs that foster entrepreneurship, create employment pathways for underserved populations, enhance sustainable transportation solutions, make our roads safer and provide resources to communities that need them most. Homegrown volunteers supplement and enrich these community investments. Last year, more than 20,000 FedEx team members dedicated more than 111,000 hours to more than 775 projects as part of our FedEx Cares program.
  • Sustaining people and places: Sustainability at FedEx goes beyond our operations and supply chain. It’s also behind our connections with communities around the world. We engage our team members and nonprofit collaborators locally and globally to build more sustainable, resilient communities. Our EarthSmart®program encourages and recognizes innovation by FedEx team members and customers to improve our environmental performance. Through EarthSmart Outreach, we encourage team members across the United States to lend their time and talents to local environmental volunteer projects. Our volunteers work with community nonprofits on projects that restore natural habitats, including planting trees and restoring landscapes. FedEx is committed to connecting the world responsibly and resourcefully. Mindful of our footprint, we deliver industry-leading innovation to reduce our environmental impact.
  • FedEx Health Centers support wellness: Doug Shaw, a B-757 Sr. Aircraft Maintenance Instructor for FedEx Express, chose the FedEx Health Center-West location as his primary care provider to help him manage chronic conditions, and his results have been life-changing. The facility Doug chose is one of two FedEx Health Centers available to FedEx team members in the Memphis area.
  • Enterprise-wide support for diversity and inclusion: FedEx has a longstanding commitment to diversity, both in the workplace and in the global communities we serve. FedEx continues to be a leader in diversity recruiting and hiring. Among the many groups it supports are Women in Aviation and the Organization of Black Airline Professionals. In addition, the company is constantly searching out ways to expand its support of diversity efforts for current employees. Other longstanding initiatives include: • An Enterprise Diversity Council made up of representatives from each FedEx company, which meets several times a year to discuss strategy and oversee diversity efforts • Diversity Awareness training offered for all employees and required for management • Formal networking and affinity groups
  • Leadership development: FedEx Ground has formal and informal augmented leadership development programs specifically developed for women and minorities. There are three-step programs for both groups that begin with two-day symposiums and end with 11 month intensive leadership cohorts. Throughout the network, employees participating in these programs pay it forward by hosting forums and educational events that encourage employees to own their development and inspire them to work towards higher leadership levels.
