Stepping up as a force for good
Cincinnati, OH, April 28, 2020 – As the world addresses COVID-19 together, P&G is committed to protecting P&G people, serving consumers and supporting communities. P&G’s trusted brands are helping people clean, take care of their personal health and hygiene, and create healthy homes – while the company is ensuring the safety of work environments and protection of P&G people. P&G’s product and in-kind donations so far add up to tens of millions of dollars across more than 30 brands, more than 200 organizations, and in more than 30 countries – and they’ve recently started production of hand sanitizer, face masks and face shields.
P&G people can work confidently knowing the Company stands with and behind them.
We’re constantly evaluating and updating the robust measures already in place to help our people who are making, packing and shipping P&G products stay safe at work, and, where possible, enabling others to work from home.
This includes access control measures like temperature scans, shift rotations, queueing avoidance and physical distancing; protective equipment including hand sanitizers and masks; and comprehensive, methodical cleaning of all production areas, including regular sanitization and surface disinfection that exceeds the most rigorous health authority standards.
We’ve built sustainable and robust employee policies and a culture that can support, nurture, and endure for the long term, with robust health & wellness benefits, access to virtual medical visits without cost, pay continuity, paid leave, flexible work arrangements and more.
P&G is maximizing the availability of products that help people and their families with their health, hygiene and cleaning needs, which have never been greater.
We’re running extra shifts, putting idled equipment back into service quickly, and constantly finding new ways to deliver more of the products consumers depend on.
Millions of P&G products are also being donated, helping to ensure families have basic access to the everyday essentials many of us take for granted.
We’re using our marketing and communications expertise to encourage consumers to help flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus.
And we’re using our brands’ voices to share important safety, cleaning and hygiene messages with consumers.
P&G has a long history of supporting communities in times of need – now is no exception.
Our product and in-kind donations so far add up to tens of millions of dollars across more than 30 brands, more than 200 different organizations, and in more than 30 countries – and will continue to increase as we work with communities around the world to support their efforts.
We’ve modified equipment to produce hand sanitizer in nearly a dozen global manufacturing sites, using it to ensure our people can continue operating safely and sharing it with hospitals, health care facilities and relief organizations.
Work is underway to produce critically needed non-medical face masks in every region of the world.
And we’ve leveraged P&G R&D, engineering and manufacturing capability to quickly produce face shields which are currently being used in hospitals and COVID-19 testing centers.
