Japan Tobacco International on Friday received Top Employer Europe 2013 certification during an awards ceremony held at the Park Plaza hotel in London.
According to a note posted on the JTI website, 10 JTI offices were recognized for their excellence in human resources management by the CRF (Corporate Research Foundation) Institute. The offices are in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland and the UK.
“Hiring the best talents and investing in people development are the cornerstones of JTI’s human resources approach”, says Ilona Alonso, human resources vice president for JTI’s Western Europe Region.
“This recognition, combined with our recent Employee Engagement Survey results, give us the confidence that we are doing things right.”
Meanwhile, Mark Phillips, human resources vice president for the Central Europe region, said there was a strong sense of common purpose at JTI, where more than 91 per cent of employees worldwide supported the company’s goals, objectives and values, and 94 per cent were willing to make extra efforts to help JTI succeed.
“The Top Employer award is yet another reason for our employees to be proud of working for JTI,” Phillips added.
