We are BAT – our company video

The people who help make us the company we are today take centre stage in our company video, We are BAT.

The video presents our business through the eyes of our employees and those we work with around the world. Among those we hear from are a farmer whose family has been supplying us with tobacco for three generations and BAT scientists involved in developing a next generation of potentially reduced-risk products.

We believe their stories show who we are: a progressive company that’s proud of its heritage and excited about the future.

Introducing our Women in STEM initiative

Our Women in STEM initiative is aimed at attracting, developing and retaining women who can bring fresh perspectives to BAT as we accelerate our Transforming Tobacco ambition.

Great talent and an engaging culture are key to BAT’s success – and diversity is a critical component of that. As we continue on our Transforming Tobacco journey and develop technologies and products which are relevant to our adult consumer base, we need to unlock the best talent and bring different perspectives to problem-solving.

That’s why we are launching our Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) initiative. Using external partnerships and internal learning and development platforms, the initiative aims to attract develop and retain more women in our Research & Development, Operations and Information & Digital Technology (IDT) functions.

In our video above, we hear from some of the women in ‘STEM’ roles who talk about the importance of this initiative and why it is the right time to work for BAT as a STEM professional.

We currently employ more than 21,000 people in ‘STEM’ roles around the world. We have range of scientists, engineers and technicians at all levels in our largest R&D centres in the UK, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brazil. Our engineers work in factories across the world on our cutting-edge and innovative products while our IDT hubs in Kuala Lumpur, Poland and Mexico are leading our digital transformation.

Marina Bellini, our Director, Digital and Information, says: “We are constantly looking for new solutions and to create a new future. We need people who can come up with different ways of looking at solutions, people who can approach innovation programmes with a slightly different touch. We need a diverse workforce to enable us to achieve some of these goals.”

In the UK, we have joined WISE , an organisation that enables people in business, industry and education to increase the participation, contribution and success of women in STEM by organising knowledge sharing and networking events, training and webinars. These types of partnerships, which we are looking to implement in key hubs across the business, will also provide female employees the opportunity to widen their network and interact with peers from other companies.
