Our organizational structure is comprised of Global Business Units, Selling and Market Operations, Global Business Services and Corporate Functions. It combines global scale benefits with a local focus on consumers and retail customers in each country where P&G products are sold.
Our Global Business Units (GBUs) are organized into industry-based sectors which share common technologies, competitors and consumer benefits. GBUs are responsible for developing overall brand strategy, new product upgrades and innovations and marketing plans.
Our Selling and Market Operations (SMOs) are responsible for developing and executing go-to-market plans at the local level – and includes dedicated retail customer, trade channel and country-specific teams. Their focus is effective and efficient selling, distribution, shelving, pricing execution and merchandising for consumers, channels, customers and markets in six regions:
Global Business Services (GBS) provides technology, processes and standard data tools to enable the GBUs and the SMOs to better understand the business and better serve consumers and customers. The GBS organization is responsible for providing world-class solutions at a low cost and with minimal capital investment.
GBS also supports P&G business units and employees in areas such as accounting and financial reporting, information technology, purchases, payroll and benefits administration, and facilities management.
Lean Corporate Functions ensure ongoing functional innovation and capability improvement.
