Philip Morris Georgia was named as a Top Employer for the 3rd consecutive year, in recognition of the company’s excellence in people practices and ability to meet the needs of a modern workforce. The Top Employer certification is the result of an independent assessment by the Top Employers Institute, which has recognized Philip Morris Georgia’s parent company, Philip Morris International (PMI), as a Global Top Employer for the fifth year in a row.
“The recognition of Philip Morris Georgia as Top Employer for the 3rd consecutive year is a strong endorsement of the high-quality working environment at Philip Morris Georgia. “- said Yuriy Gordok, General Manager Caucasus & Moldova for Philip Morris International. “We continue to strive for excellence in ensuring Philip Morris Georgia is a great place to work and constantly challenge ourselves to provide a unique work environment and experience for our people.”
