Imperial Tobacco Taiwan is a subsidiary of Imperial Brands in Taiwan, which was established in 2002 with 17 years of history. As a member of a global company, we have a comprehensive range of cigarettes product lines featured by well-known global brands – Davidoff, West and P&S. We have continually evolved to embrace changing market dynamics and develop new consumer experiences, as we commit to product development and innovation to create something better for smokers. Taiwan plays a strategic role in Asia and we have set up a manufacturing site in Miaoli in 2007 to embed our investment for sustainable growth and demonstrate our commitment to create more jobs in the community. The local production has also shortened the supply chain pipeline, improved the speed to market, and fulfilled our ultimate promise to consumers on product quality.

Building a sustainable enterprise requires us to conduct business with integrity, respect the environment and commit to Corporate Social Responsibility. These are resonated in our corporate philosophy, and as evident by our participation in the “My Sponsored Rice Land” program, volunteering activities including spending time with the elders in the care center, community center cleaning and refurbishment, “Leopard Cat protection” – removing snails from the field for the farmers, and “Rescuing Miaoli Luzhunan Community”…etc. We have involved our employees to take part and make physical contributions to dedicate to the community and society.

We firmly believe that talent development is of critical importance to our business success, particularly in the current VUCA environment. We conduct annual Talent Review to identify high potential employees, and provide full support to their development journey as future leaders. We have an integrated performance management process to help our people set up SMART performance objectives and development plans, through ongoing and regular conversations with their people managers and getting feedbacks from their colleagues. With digital learning becoming the prevailing trend in the world, as a corporation we have made significant investments in a global online Learning Portal which has consolidated extensive internal and external learning resources. Our employees can have full access to Imperial’s own learning materials, as well as comprehensive external learning resources which include Harvard Online, LinkedIn Learning, TED Talk and Get Abstract. This Learning Portal allows our employees to take a variety of e-learning courses at their fingertips via laptop and personal handheld devices to support their individual development anywhere and anytime.

People have different needs in different stages of life. To respect such personal choices, we launched Flexible Benefits program in 2015, which allows our employees to decide how to utilize the Company’s given budget in designated benefit categories, e.g., Family Care, Health & Wellness, and Self-Learning. Employees who have children or parents can apply for tuition fees, nursing or day-caring fees. Personal health management seekers can get Company’s support on gym membership, physical training courses or health examinations. And those pursuing personal learning outside of work related areas, such as language learning, floral arrangement and photography can get company funding as we encourage employees to strive for work-life balance.

Underpinned by our corporate values, we strive under challenges and commit to innovation; our positive mindset drives our success as we work together to find the best solutions and ensure that we are aligned to deliver them. We encourage collaboration and open communication, as we value personal and team contributions. We enjoy what we do and celebrate driving success together. Our values are about working together, continually improving, taking ownership and making the most of every opportunity.
