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.
