One of the world’s “Big Four” tobacco companies, British American Tobacco (BAT) has a well-established employee value proposition of “bring your difference” that chimes perfectly in an organisation whose 57,000+ staff are present in more than 140 countries. This article offers a concise overview of how BAT recently reviewed and reframed its reward philosophy and practices in order to improve consistency across its diverse operations and to help attract and retain the top talent so vital to its future success.
