TANZANIA Cigarette Company Limited (TCC) has been certified by Top Employer Institute of South Africa as one of the top employers in Tanzania for excellence in employees conditions.
TCC is among six other Japan Tobacco International (JTI) Group of Companies (JTI) entities in Africa that were also awarded the top award in their respective countries at the award ceremony held recently in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This follows an annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute which recognises leading employers around the world which provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and strive to continuously optimise employment practices.
The CEO of Top Employers Institute, David Plink, said their survey showed TCC forms part of a selected group of employers that advance employee conditions worldwide and their people are well taken care of.
TCC’s Human Resources Director, Angela Mangecha said the certification demonstrated the commitment of TCC and its parent company JTI to create a working environment in Tanzania that is on par with the Company’s international standards.
She said it gives a deep sense of pride to employees to work for a certified Top Employer and provides them with independent confirmation that they are working for an organisation that is objectively rated as one of the best in Tanzania and Africa.
The certification gives TCC the opportunity to attract the best talent available in Tanzania, she said.
