5 Reasons Why You Should Work in BAT Malaysia

By Mel Sim

The proof is in the pudding.

#1 We’re an Award-Winning Organisation
BAT Malaysia has been consistently recognised as a top employer for its outstanding HR practices such as our cutting-edge HR technology, competitive benefits, and reward infrastructure as well as our talent management processes within the organisation. Most recently, we clinched the prestigious Life at Work Awards commissioned by Talent Corp, a government body under the Ministry of Human Resources, for being the Best International Organisation and Outstanding Practices – Initiative for Women Workforce.

We’re also consistently at the top of the GRADUAN Brand Awards in the FMCG Category!

#2 A Global Graduate Programme Designed for Future Leaders
In BAT Malaysia, we are well known for investing significant effort to establish a strong, sustainable talent pipeline, and our Global Graduate Programme (GGP) is a testament to that. Every year, we train and develop several high-calibre talent within various functions in the business (Marketing, Supply Chain, Finance, Human Resources). These graduates are assigned immersive and impactful projects from Day One and provided world-class training opportunities to maximise their potential. Upon graduation, our talent will subsequently land managerial positions within the organisation.

#3 Work with a Melting Pot of Nationalities
When we say we were born international, we truly mean it! In BAT Malaysia alone, we have approximately nine nationalities, spanning various countries such as Bangladesh, Argentina, Sri Lanka and the UK. Diversity remains at the very heart of BAT’s core DNA, and we continuously advocate, respect and embrace the inherent differences of our people. Working in BAT Malaysia ultimately allows for a deeper appreciation for the various viewpoints and nuances in an international organisation that enables the establishment of a truly global, diverse and inclusive workforce.

#4 Nothing Beats Our Work Hard, Play Hard Culture
We are a passionate bunch; no doubt about it. We put our heart, energy and drive in everything that we do, whether it’d be in the workplace or after-hours. While we revel and enjoy the stretched opportunities offered to us at work, we are aware of the importance to celebrate wins (big and small) and make time for leisure as well. Our BAT Malaysia Sports Club has organised multiple events to celebrate within the BAT Malaysia family such as go-kart racing, treasure hunts and archery, making the organisation a great place to work in!

#5 BAT Malaysia = Certified Green Office!
Aside from being a prominent FMCG organisation, BAT Malaysia also places a huge emphasis on sustainability. Recently, BAT Malaysia was certified as a Green Office for its outstanding integration of optimised sustainable practices to the physical workspace such as HEPA filtration, ergonomic chairs coupled with spacious cubicles/work areas, and a sophisticated energy conservation system to minimise energy usage. All of this culminates in the overall efforts to ensure that we bring forth a renewed purpose within the business and do our part to propel the sustainability agenda forward.
