COVID-19 response
Stepping up as a force for good

In 2020, we stepped up our efforts to be a force for good and a force for growth by doing our part to help people and communities overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the pandemic remains, so does our commitment to step up and continue to help.

We’re answering the call to do even more, guided by three core principles:

  1. Protecting the health and well-being of P&G people;
  2. Serving consumers around the world who count on our brands and the benefits they provide;
  3. 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.


We are helping P&G people work confidently – standing with and behind them – with a rigorous focus on health and safety through:

  • Safety protocols and manufacturing of protective gear to keep them safe on site;
  • Network and collaboration tool upgrades and training to ensure sufficiency and flexibility when they work remotely; and
  • Enhanced benefits and wellness resources to help navigate the challenges of managing work and family.
