Imperial wins Top Employer recognition once more

We’re thrilled to be recognised as a ‘Top Employer Europe’ for a fourth successive year in 2021.

Country-level certifications have been achieved by a record 11 of our entities across Europe, with our Russian business earning Top Employer status this year for the first time.

Outside Europe, our businesses in Morocco and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have also been recognised as a Top Employer for the first time, taking the total number of certified Imperial Brands entities this year to 13.

Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in the conditions that businesses create for their people.

Companies participating in its prestigious certification programme have the potential to gain Top Employer status following a comprehensive analysis of people development practices.

The Institute’s analysis covers 600 practices across a number of areas including: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, On-Boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits and Culture. 

Alison Clarke, Chief People and Culture Officer at Imperial Brands, said: “I am delighted that Imperial has been recognised for another year with the Top Employer certification.

“Our HR Practices have been surveyed against an international benchmark with a thorough methodology. This accreditation is a symbol of the high standards that we aspire to deliver every day for our people.”
