…As a global top employer of choice

Japan Tobacco International Nigeria (JTI), celebrates this year’s International Workers’ Day, felicitating its workforce across the globe for their steadfastness, pursuit of excellence, and innovation, which has engendered the company’s growth trajectory.

The company, which is a member of JTI Worldwide with personnel in over 130 countries across the world, has attained excellence in its employee experience strategies and won the prestigious ‘Top Global Employer’ award for 10 consecutive years including regional certifications in Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America, and the Middle East.

With this year’s International Workers’ Day theme ‘Social Justice and Decent Work for All,’ JTI Nigeria is committed to creating a working environment that enables brilliant people to be creative and nurture the best possible culture that embraces diversity and individual development thereby allowing them to reach their full potential.

The company’s sustainability target is to be a certified employer of choice every year in at least 60 locations, by focusing on talent management, rewards, and empowerment. JTI Nigeria offers long-lasting careers with inspiring prospects and promotes gender equality in its operations. This is why it set up the platform, TogetHER- an Employee Resource Group (ERG) that helps foster women’s empowerment and equal opportunities. It is a safe environment to talk, challenge, and grow on our journey towards gender equality.

Thomas Adams, the General Manager of JTI Nigeria, said as a company that operates in line with global best practices, JTI delivers on its objectives of making progress in improving employees’ well-being, supporting greater diversity and inclusion wherever it operates, and giving its personnel equal opportunity to develop their career.

He stated that while JTI is a relatively young company, it operates at the forefront of the tobacco industry with its employees at the core of its mission, and this is responsible for its certification as a “Great Place to Work”
