MANILA, Philippines — PMFTC Inc., the local affiliate of Philip Morris International (PMI), was recently re-certified as a Top Employer in the Philippines for the fourth year in a row in recognition of the company’s excellence in human resources and talent management.

“To be recognized as the Top Employer for four years now is no small accomplishment and one that we take to heart. It is an incredible testament to PMFTC’s long-term dedication to embedding inclusion in our company policies and nurturing an engaging working environment where our employees can bring their best selves to work,” said PMFTC Director of People and Culture Andreea Chiriac.


The Top Employer Certification process demonstrates to independent auditors a company’s commitment to excellent human resource (HR) processes, equity, diversity and inclusion through employee interviews, surveys and documented evidence.


“We continue to invest in our talent and foster a culture of positivity. This for us is the workplace of tomorrow – one that celebrates our differences, focuses on mental and physical wellbeing, meets the needs of globally-diverse workforce and optimizes new technologies to enable our workforce to act and lead with purpose,” Chiriac added.

“We are humbled and grateful to again receive this recognition as an employer of choice. When we committed to our vision of a smoke-free future, that led us down an exciting journey of not only innovating our products to help the millions of adult Filipino smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke, but to also transform our organization, our people and our culture. Our people have been instrumental in this journey to achieve our vision. This certification recognizes the progress we’re making as part of our transformation,” said PMFTC Communications Director Dave Gomez.
