#CulturePH - P&G advocates disability confidence through Limitless program

P&G Philippines, a company that has long advocated for workplace equality and inclusion, has launched the P&G Limitless program and the P&G Manila Service Center (MSC) Persons with Disability (PWD) Network.

The program's goal is to help everyone gain disability confidence from the moment they apply to the end of their career with the company. When employers have the skills, techniques, tools, and confidence to understand disabilities and address barriers for their PWD employees, they are said to have disability confidence.

P&G wants to foster a culture where all staff members are knowledgeable about disabilities and can communicate and collaborate effectively with people who have disabilities. With a more inclusive workplace and corporate culture, employees with disabilities and employees who have dependents with disabilities feel respected, included, and are able to work at their best.

The business employs practices like live captioning and other visual accessibility tools in software applications so that hiring managers, interviewers, and employees can take advantage of these features to conduct meetings, training sessions, and interviews with coworkers and applicants with disabilities. P&G can provide translators for hard-of-hearing applicants during interviews and onboarding activities to help them navigate and comprehend procedures so they can get off to a good start in a new firm.

“P&G believes in the power of our unique differences and in giving equal access and opportunity to everyone regardless of gender, background, sexual orientation, and disability. We intentionally provide the necessary tools and accommodations that give people an equal opportunity to succeed.  Across our hiring, training, development and appraisal processes, we assess every employee’s performance fairly based on their impact and eliminate bias where it is unnecessary,” says Vince Dizon, Country Human Resources Leader for P&G Philippines.

P&G also aims to strengthen its capabilities by partnering with different expert institutions and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as the Benilde Deaf School to conduct basic Filipino Sign Language Training.  Recently, the P&G PWD network also collaborated with the University of the Philippines College of Allied Medical Professions to conduct a Neurodiversity awareness and acceptance training for its employees. This included an interactive discussion about the introduction to neurodiversity, neurodiverse experiences and perspectives, and the types of therapies and support services to further help P&G employees to be disability confident.

Fostering inclusive communities

The PWD Network is the latest community that P&G has established to foster equality and inclusion in the workplace. Other P&G affinity networks include their Women’s Network, Parents at Work, Men Advocating Real Change (MARC), and Gay, Ally, Bisexual, and Lesbian Employees (GABLE).
