At RAI, we know you drive our success. Every day, you play your part in helping us transform the tobacco industry; building a new future for our business, colleagues and customers.
That’s why we reward your performance, efforts and achievements through competitive base pay and benefits, as well as additional financial incentives.
When it comes to our compensation programs, we believe in transparency. Our pay philosophy and targets are available to all employees.
Our compensation approach provides fair and equitable pay that is linked to employee performance and rewards for both short- and long-term results.
Each year, RAI and its operating companies review business financials and competitive compensation benchmarks to ensure that employee pay continues to align with our competitive pay philosophy.
Based on our annual competitive pay review, the company may decide to award base pay increases to employees. Depending on your role, you may also have an opportunity to receive a merit increase determined by your annual performance rating. If you achieve a high rating, you may be rewarded with a larger annual merit increase.
If you’re a regular, full-time or part-time employee, you have the opportunity to share in RAI’s success through our annual incentive programs – designed to reward you for your contribution to meeting annual business targets. Depending on your role, you may have an opportunity to receive a larger bonus if you receive a high annual performance rating.
“The benefits are great [and include] a bonus that’s based on your ability to impact others and RAI’s culture. Managers want to see their employees doing well and being successful, and they provide you with the tools to do so.”
