So we can offer a huge array of careers in a flexible and inspiring environment.

We believe the one factor that has enabled P&G to survive and thrive for so long is our Company’s Purpose. In and of itself, this Purpose is not especially unique. Lots of companies have similar aspirations. But there are two things that set P&G’s Purpose apart: our Purpose has been remarkably consistent from the time this Company was founded in 1837. More, our Purpose is pervasive. It guides and inspires everything we do at P&G. Committing ourselves to “Touching and Improving Lives, Now and for Generations to Come” inspires our performance as professionals. It captures our imagination and passion.

It focuses us on the people we serve and inspires empathy for them. It helps us identify the tensions in people’s lives that we can help resolve - tensions such as the trade-off between product performance and quality... and the desire to protect the environment. If we understand these tensions, we can develop the insights that lead to big innovations.
