Philip Morris International is also certified as Global Top Employer by the Top Employers Institute

IPM India Wholesale Trading Private Limited (IPM India), a country affiliate of Philip Morris International, Inc. (PMI), was named as a Top Employer for the fourth consecutive year. The certification is further recognition of PMI’s excellence in people practices, firmly establishing the company among the ranks of employers of choice focused on meeting the needs of a globally diverse workforce.

The Top Employer certification is the result of an independent assessment by the Top Employers Institute, which has recognized IPM India’s parent company, Philip Morris International (PMI), as a Global Top Employer for the seventh year in a row. PMI’s affiliates were also recognized as leading employers in 33 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia/Pacific.

Alexander Reisch, Managing Director of IPM India, said, “We are honoured to be recognized as a Top Employer in 2023 for the fourth year in a row. We have been consistently working towards fostering a culture of innovation thereby building a future-ready organization. The award recognizes IPM India’s continued commitment towards nurturing an inclusive workplace with people friendly policies.”

One of the top priorities of PMI is achieving gender balance at all levels. Company’s focus is firmly on leveraging the full talents of both women and men. Currently, women make up 42 per cent of the company’s workforce. More than 40 per cent of the company’s management positions are held by women. PMI’s goal is to achieve at least 35 per cent of women in senior roles by 2025.

Jasneet Kaur, People & Culture Director, IPM India, said, “We are delighted to be recognized as a Top Employer for the fourth consecutive year. Our innovative people-first policies, empowering culture, best practices, and nurturing talent continues to be the driving principle for our organization. This recognition reinforces our belief in constantly evolving and adopting best practices to address the needs and aspirations of a diverse global workforce.”

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey.
