PETALING JAYA, 22 March 2021 – Philip Morris (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (PMM) has been recognized as a Top Employer in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific region for the second year in a row by the Top Employers Institute.

PMM Managing Director Naeem Khan says: “These recognitions are testaments to our amazing people at PMM, whose resilience have brought us closer to the smoke-free future we envisioned for Malaysia despite a turbulent year. Undeterred by new challenges presented by the global pandemic, they continue to create positive impacts in the lives of the millions of adult smokers in Malaysia, as well as their families and the communities. The hard work and commitment displayed were undoubtedly the key to achieving our shared vision of a smoke-free future”.

“Everyone at PMM has an equal share in building a workplace that is collaborative and inclusive where all opinions are valued, and everyone has the same access to tools and opportunities which would help them excel in their professional career. We are the champion of a people-first culture and we attribute that to the recognition as the employer of choice in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific region.”

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), Philip Morris Malaysia has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to make this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in Asia Pacific through the Top Employers Institute programme.”
