Work for a company that cares, doing work you care about
Being a large manufacturing plant, safety is at the heart of our culture and everything we do at the site. With this in mind, we are proud of our “Nothing we do is worth getting hurt for” attitude and the way we take care of ourselves and our colleagues. This culture of safety behaviour allows us to perform and excel to the maximum, to achieve our site’s goals and beyond. We believe that if we can meet the needs of our consumers safely, we can be our most effective and everybody wins.
The plant environment offers everything you would expect to see and more. All areas are kept clean by our great cleaning contractors and safety is continually assessed in all working spaces, rest spaces and routes of travel across the site.
At P&G Reading Plant we consider ourselves as close-knit, no matter which part of the plant you work within; what you will find at the site are knowledgeable individuals who are only too happy to share their knowledge and help to problem-solve together.
We are always delighted to welcome new members to our Reading Plant family.
Diversity & Gender Equality
P&G Reading Plant has a hugely diverse work population reflective of the town of Reading and it is important to us to celebrate everyone who works in it. Therefore, our Equality & Inclusion Team promotes and educates on equality, diversity and inclusion within our workplace by running events and always offering opportunities for everyone to better understand other cultures.
From resource and affinity groups to specific aids, we make sure people with disabilities (PWD) at P&G have everything they need to feel welcome, be understood, and make a difference. Every day, we work towards making our offices—and the world—more inclusive and accessible.
Our plant hosts a number of employee events throughout the year, these include a skills and capability-building week, team Christmas dinner, Christmas party, Summer party, as well as celebrating winning milestones with BBQs, ice-cream hour, and team pizza. Of course, the team here really do know how to have fun!
We invite our employees to give us their points of view each month so that we can keep moving ahead to make sure this is one of the best places to work.
Giving Back to the Community
Our Company recognises the value of giving back to the communities we serve as part of our corporate citizenship responsibilities, and our broader company Purpose, Values and Principles. We have a Community Matters team which helps us look at ways to support local communities and groups; in the last year we have worked closely with Berkshire Women's Aid (standing up against domestic abuse), Reading Mencap (supporting those facing difficulties due to mental health) and New Beginnings (helping young homeless people).
Our Employee Volunteering Program enables employees to lend a supporting hand to their chosen charity, whilst receiving paid time off.
Working with secondary schools in the area, our Reading team work together to offer valuable work experience to pupils interested in Science, Technical, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers; our engineering and technical employees also attend careers events to encourage young people to think about careers in a STEM subject.
