Procter & Gamble Co., also known as P&G, is an American multinational consumer goods company headquartered in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, founded by William Procter and James Gamble, both from the United Kingdom. Its products include cleaning agents and personal care products. Prior to the sale of Pringles to the Kellogg Company, its product line also included foods and beverages.
In 2014, P&G recorded $83.1 billion in sales. On August 1, 2014, P&G announced it was streamlining the company, dropping around 100 brands and concentrating on the remaining 65 brands, which produced 95% of the company’s profits. A.G. Lafley, the company’s chairman, president, and CEO until October 31, 2015, said the future P&G would be “a much simpler, much less complex company of leading brands that’s easier to manage and operate”.
David Taylor became P&G CEO and President effective November 1, 2015.
P&G people are the Company’s most important resource and source of competitive advantage. Success depends entirely on the strength of our talent pipeline, which we build from within and manage with a disciplined process led by the CEO and the senior leadership team. Our approach to developing leaders at P&G is elegantly simple. We take the same rigorous and disciplined approach to developing leaders at P&G around the world in every business, in every region and at every level.
Build from within
At P&G, we are proud that we develop talents almost exclusively from within. This means we are not just offering you your first job out of university, we are hiring you with the expectation you will grow into one of our future leaders. Maybe even our next CEO. Our build from within approach means that you will start in the entry level position of the function you have applied for and face new and diverse challenges every day. From day one you will be given real responsibility that will increase overtime into independent leadership of your area of activities; but along this path you will receive the support and guidance you need to succeed.
Opportunities working abroad
The global nature of our business means that you'll find yourself working across many different functions or business units in ASEAN. Your projects will often have an international nature and span well beyond your national boundaries; you will experience the global temperament of our brands and the constantly changing work environment that only a multinational company can offer. So if you're keen to explore the world of international business, P&G is the right place for you!
