Institute certifies Phillip Morris top employer in Nigeria
The Top Employers Institute (TEI) has named Phillip Morris International Limited as a top employer in Nigeria due mainly to its friendly working conditions and commitment to employees.
This is coming after two years of its establishment in the country. TEI, which certifies leading employers around the world that provide highest standards in employee conditions within their organisations, awarded Phillip Morris the certificate of recognition.
Philip Morris Limited is one of only eight companies in Nigeria to be recognised for demonstrating excellence in its Human Resources practices and employment conditions, which ensure that its employees could develop personally and professionally through programmes that are well designed and aligned with its culture.
At the award ceremony, which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa, Philip Morris International, a leading tobacco company was awarded Top Employer in Africa for the second consecutive year while it was also recognised as a global top employer earlier in the year.
Managing Director of Philip Morris Limited, Coskun Kagan Dicle, reaffirmed the organisation’s commitment to become an integral part of Nigeria by contributing to the growth of its economy through tax revenues, as well as the social network through provision of employment opportunities and investments.
“Philip Morris is extremely proud that within two years of its establishment in Nigeria, it is recognised with such a laudable corporate achievement. Our company is one out of eight companies in the country to be certified as a top employer and also one of two companies in Nigeria with the global top employer certification.
“Our diverse team is reflective of a work culture that appreciates differences. Our business is conducted in an ethical and sustainable manner consistent with international business standards. The Top Employer certification validates that Philip Morris Limited is a great place to work for people who do great things.”
Areas of assessment in the certification process include talent strategy, performance management, learning and development, succession management and organisational culture.
Grand Thornton, a popular global auditing firm, validated the assessment, which demonstrates that the research has verified the company’s outstanding employee conditions and earned it a coveted spot among certified companies.
