Health and wellness are a top priority in onsite P&G operations

The company puts employees’ health first as they shift back to onsite operations.

As companies return to the workplace from being fully remote, being back in the office may bring some uncertainties to a few. It is crucial for employees to stay healthy and avoid risks of transmission of common colds as quarantine restrictions are being lifted. 

Site operations and company protocols have been upgraded to adapt to the current set-ups and help prepare its employees for return-to-office. Additional ventilation, installation of air filters, and more frequent schedules for disinfection have been put in place —yet these are only precautionary measures and employees must continue to take care of themselves going to and from the office.

Top multinational company Procter & Gamble (P&G) puts this concern aside for its employees with its various initiatives to ensure a safe and healthy workplace.

Must-haves for onsite employees

One of these initiatives is the Vicks Defense Kit to help ensure the health and readiness of their employees for on-site work. As the name alludes, this kit contains medicines and items that can help employees to stay healthy and be ready to go back to their workplace.

Kathleen Sy (P&G Cabuyao Plant HR Leader) said that the overall feedback on the Vicks Defense Kits is positive. She said that it drives pride among employees to manufacture products that help defend the health and wellness of the community.

“Our employees’ health and safety is our #1 priority while we balance to meet the needs of our consumers, our customers, and the country,” she said.

“Our main commitment is to ensure that our employees are safe and healthy by continuously developing protocols, policies, and tools for better working environments that support their overall physical and mental well-being,” she added.

Ascorbic Acid + Zinc + Cholecalciferol (Vicks Immune Defense) has Vitamin C to help fight a cold, Zinc to help fight cell damage, and even high-strength Vitamin D to help fight infection. These ingredients are known to be beneficial to help boost one’s immune system, with proper diet and exercise.

Meanwhile, the Vicks First Defence nasal spray is clinically proven to help stop a cold when used at first signs.  It is intended to be used at the first sign of a cold, or on exposure to a cold, to help stop a cold in its tracks and helps reduce the chance of developing a full-blown cold. It can also help reduce the symptom severity and duration.

A commitment to defense against common colds

P&G Cabuyao shared that including the Vicks First Defence and Ascorbic Acid + Zinc + Cholecalciferol (Vicks Immune Defense) in the kits was instrumental in making sure that they are providing top quality products for their employees to help defend their and their families’ health.

Given that employees might get exposed to other risk factors with on-ground work, P&G implemented highest safety standards as well as additional testing as part of its site protocols. In its day-to-day operations, they re-designed for the plant workplace to minimize contact with two-meter markings to promote distance.  They also invested in headsets and other contactless tools. 

All these attests to the commitment of P&G to defend the health and safety of its employees.
