The Founder's Principles are based on values and behaviors that have been fundamental to the ongoing success of DP World. These principles have always been – and continue to be – central to every decision DP World’s Founder Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem makes, and has become the foundation of our company's culture.
These principles define what we do, who we are and is why we are known for the shared values of our people. Our continued success depends on growth and growth extends beyond our balance sheet to the development of our people, our industry; and the economies and communities in which we operate.
As a part of a global business we have many assets, but none more important than our people. With over 53,000 employees worldwide, we are committed to ensuring they have the skills and knowledge to perform at the highest level. By investing in our people, we can shape their career progression to benefit them personally and professionally – which benefits DP World too. Employees’ learning and development needs are constantly assessed, with opportunities and goals identified as part of the annual performance review process.
