CHALLENGES OVERVIEW

Help us shape the future of choice

At Japan Tobacco International we believe in freedom. We think the possibilities are limitless when you’re free to choose. We’ve spent the last 20 years innovating. Creating new and better products for our consumers to enjoy.

We want bright ideas for our future

How can we create better choices, smarter products and pleasurable experiences for our consumers, our talent, and the communities we serve?

Tackle this big challenge

Through one of three challenge themes.
You decide. How's that for freedom?

FUTURE OF TALENTS

To get you started: an insight on the future of talents

Building a career today isn't the same as building a career in the past. Advanced globalization, faster technology and shifting demographics are changing the skills that we need as a worldwide business. 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't even been invented yet*.
These changes will affect job markets, career pathways and the way we nurture talents.

As a talent architect how can we improve employees’ experiences and their career paths to build a personal and professional life-changing adventure?

Think about JTI…

• Attract: how can we improve our candidate's experience, even before they come to meet us?

• Grow: how can we help our existing and future employees to unlock their potential, develop their skills in a faster, more dynamic way and build the career they'll love? How can we promote our flexible start-up mindset and continue to create an environment that fosters innovation?

• Retain: what's the future of the workplace and employee's experience, enabling greater flexibility, improved wellbeing and efficient working?

*According to a report published by Dell Technologies and authored by the Institute For The Future (IFTF)

CONSUMER EXPERIENCE

To get you started: an insight on consumer experience

73% of all people point to customer experience as an important factor in their purchasing decisions*.

How would you define (or redefine) the consumer experience of the future?

Think about JTI…

• How might connected devices give us even greater freedom, more choice and moments of pleasure?

• How can innovation reduce costs, increase safety and improve quality?

• How could we sustain the life of wireless products and provide alternative power sources?

• How could we use tech to recognize, serve and verify consumers individually and their age?

• How can we enhance our retail experience to increase consumer enjoyment and loyalty?

According to research from PWC 2017/2018

SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

To get you started: an insight on social engagement

The majority of environmental sustainability decision-makers agree that new technologies could help solve problems facing our society and environment*.

Which ideas and innovations could we introduce to maximize JTI's total societal impact?

Think about JTI…

• How could we build greater sustainability into our products, services, supply chains and employee’ lifecycle?

• How could Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and other technologies improve social and environmental impact?

• How do we create synergy between renewable solutions and improved consumer experiences?

According to a 2018 report by Intel
