#CulturePH - Top employer P&G bags triple win at the 2022 Asia CEO Awards

The fact that Procter & Gamble (P&G) Philippines won three awards at the 2018 Asia CEO Awards is a testament to the company's excellent corporate culture and commitment to corporate responsibility.

P&G Philippines was named the "Top Employer of the Year" Grand Winner by the awards organization. In the Circle of Excellence, the Company was also recognized as "Diversity Company of the Year" and "Sustainability Company of the Year" awardee.

Held annually since 2010, the Asia CEO Awards seeks to highlight the leadership accomplishments of notable companies and leaders that contribute to building the nation. This year’s Asia CEO Awards received over 400 nominations from the nation’s top organizations and industry leaders. 

“P&G is honored to be awarded by the 2022 Asia CEO Awards as the Grand Winner for the Top Employer of the year.  This is valuable recognition of our company’s efforts to be a force for good and a force for growth for our employees, consumers and the country. We focused on prioritizing employee health and safety, delivering superior brand innovations and supporting nation-building efforts amidst and despite the pandemic,” shares Raffy Fajardo, President and General Manager of P&G

Employer of choice

P&G is one of the select few organizations with a successful "promote from within" culture and is well known for making significant investments in the growth of its talent and executives. The organization sets itself apart by offering rewarding employment managing billion-dollar worldwide brands, giving employees international exposure and assignments, and combining them with on-the-job mentoring from the top business leaders in the local, regional, and international markets.

People are the company's most valuable assets, and they have demonstrated this to varied degrees, from converting their Cabuyao manufacturing factory to make medical-grade facemasks for donations and employees to changing their on-site multi-faceted wellness programs to accommodate a virtual setup. During the pandemic, P&G’s employee care program dubbed “Alagang P&G” focused on ensuring employee safety, health, wellness, and connectedness despite the organization being physically apart for over 2 years. As a result, the company’s recent organization survey revealed that an impressive 93% of its employees were proud to work for P&G. 

P&G has also stepped up as a Force for Good and a Force for Growth by providing job security, safeguarding frontliners with medical PPEs, aiding covid-vulnerable communities, building health infrastructure and continuing economic investments.

An equal and inclusive employer and workplace

Through industry-leading policies, inclusive initiatives, and equitable practices, P&G's "We See Equal" program promotes equal access and opportunities for all of its workers to achieve, particularly in settings where males have traditionally held a disproportionate amount of power. For instance, P&G created its physical manufacturing work opportunities so that both men and women could access them. This was done through the use of automated technologies that guarantee that both sexes can complete the task. By removing physical limitations, the use of mechanical cargo lifters eliminates the gender prejudice in the employment.

All P&G parents, biological and adoptive, are entitled to a minimum of 8 weeks of paid parental leave, which the company pioneered and set the standard for in the industry. This time off allows parents to get to know and take care of their new family member(s). This goes beyond the standard 7 days paid paternity leave mandated by the government and breaks old stereotypes that the mother is the sole and full-time caregiver for a new child.

P&G has also provided equal opportunities and inclusive work environments for persons with disabilities (PWD) through its recently launched Limitless program.  This helps create a more inclusive workplace and company culture where applicants and employees with disabilities and employees with disabled dependents feel valued, included, and can perform at their peak.

Sustainability in action

Environmental sustainability is at the forefront of P&G's corporate citizenship priorities, which has led to their awarding as “Sustainability Company of the Year” among the category’s Circle of Excellence. P&G’s Ambition 2030 declaration aims to make responsible consumption possible. The Cabuyao plant is a 100% zero manufacturing waste to landfill operation. They purchase 100% renewable electricity for its Cabuyao plant operations. They also track overall water consumption and recycle wastewater in the plant.  

The company’s new sustainability initiative “Project LESS” introduces new waste reduction solutions for in-store and online retailing. They converted single-use Point-of-Sale Materials (POSMs) to collapsible, reusable, and paper-based POSMs. This also converted plastic shrink-wrap packaging to FSC-certified paper stickers and replaced plastic bubble wrap with upcycled honeycomb papers in their last-mile e-commerce packaging. This project reduced 380,000 kilograms of single-use plastic and approximately 20,000 kilograms of virgin material use.

As the country’s top employer, the multinational has grown to over 2,000 employees despite the challenges of the pandemic and is poised to continue delivering superior branded products while contributing to nation-building in the Philippines.
