The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) has recognized 12 of its top performing External Business Partners with its prestigious Partner of the Year award. P&G has worked extensively to become better connected with its external business partners in recent years, especially in product and supply innovation. At the awards ceremony, P&G leaders specifically thanked several companies for their collaboration and business results in this area. P&G has now expanded its business partner integration into citizenship, where governance, sustainability, and diversity and inclusion are just three topics targeted for better synchronization. The passion applied to innovation and citizenship are examples of a supply network transformation that has seen P&G and its community of partners cooperating anew, making step-changes in areas of production, creating breakthrough ways to connect, and pioneering new opportunities to collaborate. P&G is extremely pleased and proud of the spirit of partnership it is receiving from these companies.
Additionally, P&G also awarded over 30 other companies The External Business Partner Excellence Award, including two for superior performance in Supplier Diversity.
Speaking at the event honoring those recognized as Partner of the Year, David Taylor, P&G’s Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, asked P&G’s external business partners to continue to strive for the best collaborative relationship with P&G, saying: “We’re focused on getting back to balanced growth. Our supplier partners have a key role to play in our ability to deliver top-line, bottom-line and cash. The more integrated and connected P&G and our supplier partners are, the better able we are to be more innovative and productive in meeting consumers’ needs and, as a result, deliver balanced and sustainable growth and value creation for our shareholders.” He made several requests of those in attendance, including more business transparency with each other and helping P&G become faster in getting products to market.
