For over 87 years in the Philippines, P&G is among the few companies with a successful “promote from within” culture and is known to highly invest in their talent and leadership development. As the country’s top employer with about 2,000 employees, P&G distinguishes itself with meaningful careers leading billion-dollar global brands, international exposure and assignments, and hands-on mentorship from the best business leaders locally, regionally, and globally.
During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, P&G stepped up as a Force for Good and a Force for Growth, repurposing its manufacturing plant in Cabuyao, Laguna to produce medical-grade face masks for its employees and for donation to frontliners and covid hotspot communities. P&G provided job security and vaccines for its employees and their families, donated millions worth of its health and hygiene products, helped protect frontliners with PPEs, built health infrastructure in schools and hospitals, helped Red Cross vaccination efforts in far flung areas, and continued economic investments in the country.
