JTI Romania is Top Employer for the tenth year in a row, being ranked second amongst the 31 companies locally awarded. The Top Employers Institute assessed about 20 criteria, such as people strategy, leadership, work environment, digital Human Resources, on-boarding, talent attraction, development policies, learning, well-being, rewards and recognition.
Alexander Pitchka, General Manager JTI Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria: ”In 2023, JTI celebrates 30 years in Romania. It’s a time to reflect upon how far we’ve come and move ahead with confidence! We have built a successful business here and a great organization, thanks to our employees’ hard work and engagement. This award is yet another proof that the company does the right thing for its people and values them greatly. The certification also represents our commitment for the future towards our more than 1,300 employees, society, and the Romanian state. We intend to continue to invest in our people development, in community life and to support the law enforcement authorities in their fight against contraband. We are here to stay and to grow”.
”JTI is one of the first international companies to start producing in Romania, back in 1994. Since then, we have continued to invest in our factory, to upgrade our equipment and increase production capacity. We are going to finalize the latest investment program of EUR 60 million announced in 2021, which makes our factory play a key role in JTI’s sourcing to the European Union markets. About 75% of the products manufactured here in Bucharest go to export, due to quality products and high working standards. All this has meant effort, hard work, and commitment. The Romanian team can be proud of their achievements, they are top employees working for a Top Employer”, added Jamie Dunlop, Factory Lead, JTI Romania.
“This certification recognizes the long term of JTI’s excellent employment conditions and best-in-class people practices. If our people fulfil their potential and they can be authentic within the organization, the company will overachieve its business objectives. We have a great culture here, built every day by each one of our employees. We will continue to improve our people practices and adapt to the dynamics of the labor market, because we want to consolidate our status as a Top Employer, for the current team and for the future colleagues as well. We aim to have passionate people, with a one-team spirit and an open mind. People who want to know who they really are and what they like to do”, said Vaida Vegelyte-Carvalho, People & Culture Director JTI Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria.
