The heart of P&G’s research beats in Germany
Many innovations of the globally active consumer goods company originate in the Rhine-Main region.
Innovation has always been a significant part of P&G’s DNA. For P&G, it is all about improving people’s everyday lives and making each moment into a very special moment. More than 1,000 of the about 9,000 researchers across the globe work in the Rhine-Main region on innovative products that enhance people’s day-to-day lives.
Today, Procter & Gamble is one of the world’s largest producers of consumer goods. In the business year of 2012/2013, sales of the corporation, which was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio (USA) in 1837, amounted to US$ 84.2 billion. P&G’s top brands include Always®, Ariel®, Braun®, Duracell®, Fairy®, Febreze®, Gillette®, Head&Shoulders®, Iams®, Lenor®, Olay®, Oral B®, Pampers®, Pantene® and Wella®.
Germany is the largest organisational unit outside the United States. Since the beginning of its activities in Germany in 1960, P&G has continuously expanded its commitment in the Rhine-Main economic and metropolitan region. In light of this, it can clearly be said that this is the place where the heart of P&G’s worldwide research beats.
The claim to improve people’s everyday lives is not only reflected in leadingbrand products, but also in sustainable production and a high degree of employee satisfaction.
Innovative processes move P&G ever closer to its self-defined vision of “zero waste” and provide added value not only for the customers who increasingly focus on sustainable products. In the past five years, P&G itself has created a value amounting to more than US$ one billion through the recycling and reuse of production waste.
P&G also believes in sustainability in its role as an employer. Employee satisfaction and employee development are the key pillars of the human resources strategy. As the best company in the field of consumer goods out of 500 participating companies, P&G ranked 20th in the “Great Place to Work” benchmark study. Moreover, P&G consistently relies on the further development and promotion of its own staff. P&G prepares its employees for each of their next career steps with targeted training, mentoring and coaching that is based on and tailored to the individual talent.
