In service to people everywhere who are caring for their families and communities – all day, every day, P&G people are stepping up and serving others as a force for good.
We are bringing trusted brands that help people clean, take care of their personal health and hygiene, and create healthy homes for their families. We are serving communities holistically with our time, talent and technical capability. And we’re doing all of this while taking care of ourselves and each other — ensuring we work smartly and safely. In summary, we are stepping up to be there for those who have always been there for us.
In this unprecedented time, everything we do is guided by three core principles:
- Protecting the health and well-being of P&G people;
- Serving consumers around the world who count on our brands and the benefits they provide;
- Supporting communities, relief agencies and people who are on the front lines of this global pandemic.
Taken together, they ensure P&G will be there for the employees, consumers and communities who have always been there for us.
A WORD FROM OUR CEO DAVID TAYLOR
KEEPING EMPLOYEES SAFE
P&G people take great pride in every aspect of designing, making and delivering our superior products for consumers. In all cases, we will ensure the safety of our work environments and protection of our people — this is our top priority. P&G’s Purpose, Values and Principles serve as our guide, as they have for generations.
With guidance from medical professionals, we’re constantly evaluating and updating the robust measures already in place to help our people who are making, packing and shipping P&G products stay safe at work. This includes temperature scans, shift rotations, queueing avoidance, and physical distancing where possible. We’re performing comprehensive, methodical cleaning of all production areas, including regular sanitization and surface disinfection that exceeds the most rigorous health authority standards.
We’re also equipping and encouraging all employees to make smart, appropriate choices, such as staying at home if they feel unwell, are part of high-risk groups, or have pre-existing medical conditions. In all cases, we partner with our employees individually and proactively to ensure they feel — and are — protected and safe to serve our consumers, customers, and communities. This has never been more important, as many of our facilities are running around-the-clock to deliver our products during this period of increased demand.
Our industry-leading benefits plans play a critical role in providing P&G people with the resources they need to care for themselves and their families. From paid leave and comprehensive medical care, to flexible work arrangements and financial support, P&G people can work confidently knowing the Company stands with and behind them every day — but especially during times of crisis. It’s inspiring to witness the many acts of service people are taking to support and care for each other, demonstrating creativity, flexibility, and commitment — truly P&G at our best.

Many P&G products are key to helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 around the world, particularly those that are used daily for cleaning and sanitizing homes, businesses and places like healthcare and assisted-living facilities. Other P&G products are critical for helping consumers maintain proper hygiene, personal health and healthy home environments.
Everyone at P&G is working diligently to maintain the production, distribution and availability of all our brands, not only for consumers but also for the comfort and confidence of the medical professionals and first responders who are on the front line of the battle against COVID-19.
Charmin Team Keeps Rolling
Beyond our brands, we have a long history of supporting communities in times of need — and we are answering the call to do even more. We’re stepping up to provide much needed product donations and financial support. Our contributions of product and in-kind support now exceed $15 million and will continue to increase as we work with communities around the world to understand how we can best serve them.
Millions of P&G products are being donated from 30 brands in more than 20 countries, with more on the way. These donations ensure that families who do not have basic access to the everyday essentials many of us take for granted, can have the cleaning, health and hygiene benefits P&G brands can provide.

Requesting Help for Yourself or Your Organization
To do the most good we can, we work with a few established partners who have the capability and reach to help those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Unfortunately, we are not able to respond to individual requests for help. We encourage you to reach out to your local government or community relief agency as we will continue to partner with organizations that direct support to communities and individuals with the most urgent needs.
