British American Tobacco is named as ‘Top Employer in Europe’ for sixth consecutive year

18 March 2016

British American Tobacco is proud to announce that for the sixth consecutive year it has been certified as a Top Employer in Europe, this year reaching the Top 5 for the first time, by the Top Employers Institute.

The Top Employers Institute’s certification is only awarded to those companies that demonstrate the highest standards of employee offerings and who are leading the way in the development of their people.

BAT has been recognised, again, as a result of how the company nurtures and develops talent throughout all levels of the organisation, the exceptional employee conditions that it offers and its
leadership status in the HR environment.

Andrea Nemeth, Head of HR Western Europe at British American Tobacco, comments: “This prestigious certification recognises the exceptional effort we’ve made to ensure that we have the right programmes and culture in place that will both engage our employees and attract the next wave of top talent to join our company.

“It also recognises our strategic focus on building a legacy of leaders, with BAT continuing to deliver amongst the most competitive offerings available to employees in terms of learning opportunities, career development, and reward practices.”

British American Tobacco Western Europe is proud to announce that in 2016 every one of its 12 participating countries has been certified as a Top Employer: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Poland. BAT has been participating in the prestigious Top Employers Institute programme since 2011.
