The best companies need the best talent. Great people are the key to their success.

Our goal is to become the most respected and successful tobacco company in the world. To achieve this we make sure we have the best people. And to make sure we have the best people, we make sure that JTI is a great place to work.

What makes a great employer? Our people all around the world know that JTI is a company where they will grow as the business thrives. We strive for excellence, together. Our focus – on our people and our business – is long-term. Our Company is diverse. Fresh thinking inspires us and new ideas are always welcome.

We make a commitment to each and every one of our 26,000 employees. How do we make sure we’re delivering on it? We run regular engagement surveys. When our employees speak, we listen – and we act on their ideas. In this way, everyone at JTI has a voice and everyone has an opportunity to improve the way we work together. Sometimes it is big ideas that drive change, but often it’s the small ideas that make the biggest difference. We call it Kaizen – the spirit of continuous improvement. And it’s this spirit which allows JTI and its employees to grow together.

As well as listening to our employees, we look at the world outside JTI. By comparing ourselves to other employers, we can make sure that we are delivering the very best experience to our people.

To do this we participate in HR benchmarking and certification schemes all around the world. These schemes give us a clear idea of our performance as an employer, and tell us how we can improve for our employees. The results speak for themselves – we have been recognized as a Global Top Employer two years in a row. This is the gold standard of certification, proving that this is a great place to work.

JTI is today recognized as a Top Employer in 35 countries around the world and is the number one employer in Asia Pacific, with Europe and the Middle East also achieving high positions. Another important achievement involved our headquarters in Geneva, which was recognized as the number one employer in Switzerland. We are also certified by Investors in People in 17 countries, and recognized as Great Place To Work in three countries. In addition to these accolades we hold a number of local certifications and awards in many countries, which altogether serve as a powerful and reliable proof of our successful HR practices to our current and potential employees.

While we’re proud of our achievements, we’re not stopping here. Our certifications and ratings simply tell us that our approach – of listening to our employees and acting on their ideas – is the right way to keep on improving, not only in HR practices but across our business as a whole. We believe that this is the formula for our future success.

Howard Parks

"Our efforts in applying a consistent gold standard of HR practices across all our regions has obviously played a strong part in achieving recognition in an increasing number of countries. If you combine this with the results of a recent employee engagement survey where 95% of employees said they are willing to do more to make the company succeed, we clearly have a work environment we can be proud of"

Howard Parks, Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Executive Committee member.
