At P&G, our Purpose is to touch and improve lives, now and for generations to come. Our Purpose is pervasive in all that we do. And, to ensure we fulfill it, consistently, over time, we place a tremendous priority on hiring the right people. We hire for leadership and character as much as we hire for intelligence. We want to attract people whose personal Purpose and Values are highly congruent with the Company's.
That is why at P&G talent development is a top priority. As a build-from-within company, the capability of our future management and P&G's long-term growth depends enormously on the caliber of people we hire today.
In the end, we both succeed by strengthening an organization focused on improving lives of consumers and employees alike. We get better at improving lives every year; precisely because of who we hire and how we invest in their growth and success.
It is a very demanding process, but it should be. After all, both our futures depend on it.
