Building on its reputation as an excellent place to work, JTI (Japan Tobacco International) is expanding its certified Top Employer status further across the globe.

Howard Parks, JTI's Human Resources Senior Vice President and Executive Committee member, attributes the company's excellent reputation as an employer to a long-term HR approach that puts people first: "If we think about employees as investors rather than assets, it gets us to a different place in our approach to recruiting, motivating, developing, and retaining them. Like financial investors, our employees are concerned about what's going on today, but they're even more interested in what happens next."

Research conducted by the Top Employers Institute confirmed JTI's successful HR practices across the 54 certified offices and factories in 50 countries[1].

The annual international research is an independent assessment undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, which recognizes 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.

"It is great to see how JTI progresses in their results year after year. Our global certification process recognizes companies like JTI, who strive for better conditions for their employees. Aligning HR strategies on an international level, harmonizing employee conditions and setting global standards in leadership are all necessary steps," says David Plink, CEO for the Top Employers Institute.
