BAT Bangladesh was assessed across multiple aspects, such as robust business and people strategy, career and growth opportunities, simplification, employee well-being and benefits, and employer branding, said a media statement Thursday.

Saad Jashim, head of human resources at BAT Bangladesh, said: “Our focus has always been on driving high performance and developing our next generation of leaders by valuing their diverse strengths and creating a culture of inclusion and well-being.”
