Philip Morris Romania (PMR) is an affiliate of Philip Morris International (PMI), a company that transforms the tobacco industry to create a smoke-free future. The company’s vision is to replace cigarettes with low-risk products that – although not risk-free – are a much better choice than continuing to smoke.

In 1993, Philip Morris International established a local branch, and in 1997 started the construction of a factory in Otopeni. In its 30 years of activity, Philip Morris Romania has proven its role as a reliable partner of the Romanian state, and now we are fully committed to the mission of building, through innovation and research, a smoke-free Romania.

In Philip Morris Romania, we build an inclusive culture and a diverse workforce by embedding capabilities, mindsets and behaviors within our leadership and learning curriculum. These include breaking down hierarchy, making sure different voices are heard and ensuring leadership styles are adapted to the needs of different employees. At company level we show empathy and care, building psychological safety, offering coaching, and understanding how bias may impact decisions and the views of others.

Our team also focuses on the area where we can have the greatest immediate impact on our diversity: closing the gender talent gap. We are dedicated to ensuring equal pay and opportunities to each and every employee. This is why, on March 4th, 2019, PMI has become the first international company to become global EQUAL-SALARY certified, and Philip Morris Romania has been periodically going through monitoring audits in order to ensure our adherence to equal pay principles.
