"Our continued success as a Top Employer in the region is a recognition of the high standards we set ourselves," says Mike Griffiths, JTI's Human Resources Vice President for Asia Pacific. "Investing in our people is the cornerstone of our HR strategy in order to enable our employees to develop a fulfilling career within JTI, and to grow into future leaders. A good example is our recent pan-regional Asia Pacific Management Trainee Programme `Explore` that builds functional expertise and a broad business perspective with multicultural awareness, through rotational assignments across the region."

David Plink, CEO at the Top Employers Institute, confirms: "Our extensive research concluded that JTI forms part of a select group of employers that advance employee conditions worldwide. Their people are well taken care of. Having reconfirmed their outstanding HR practices again this year in the Asia-Pacific region, they can truly consider themselves at the top of an exclusive group of the world's best employers."

The annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organization, and which strive to continuously optimize employment practices. JTI's employee offerings were assessed on the following criteria: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, On-boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits, and Culture.

For JTI, the renewed regional Top Employer 2018 certification in Asia Pacific is the latest addition to a list of awards recognizing its HR excellence across the globe: JTI is currently Number One Global Top Employer and holds regional Top Employer certifications in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
