KARACHI: P&G Pakistan celebrated its annual Sponsor’s Day to acknowledge diversity at the workplace and thank mothers for their support to enable their offsprings to work and fulfill their dreams.
The event that was held at their Karachi office was attended by the employees and their mothers. Sponsor’s Day is a tribute to the mothers who support their children to do the best in life and achieve success. The event gave P&G employees an opportunity to thank their mothers for all they have done for them and for giving them the courage to believe in themselves and excel in their careers. P&G believes that behind the success of its employees are their mothers who guide and encourage them to do their best.
P&G recognized moms by inviting employees to share their moms’ everyday acts of love. P&G’s insights come from the fact that every mom has her own little signature act of love that speaks volumes. She knows how to wash a blanket to make it soft and comfortable and how to wipe little hands and faces clean, no matter what kind of mess they have been in. Employees shared stories of the little acts of kindness their mothers do that make a big difference in their lives.
“P&G brands are an indispensable part of the everyday lives of Pakistani women. We believe we can best meet the needs of Pakistani consumers when our workforce reflects the same diversity that exists in this nation. This is why we hire people from diverse backgrounds. This is why we provide a work environment that enables everyone to succeed. And this is why we seek to help them manage their personal and professional lives with flexibility,” said Faisal Sabzwari, Country Manager P&G Pakistan. He thanked the mothers present on the occasion for their tireless efforts and their unconditional love towards their children.
Expressing her views, Anam Yamin, a P&G employee shared, “I joined P&G about a few months ago and I can safely say that it is home away from home for me. A big thank you to P&G for the support it offers its employees, especially women, which helped me adjust in a fairly short period of time.”
At P&G, diversity is believed to be the engine for innovation. The company hires individuals from different cultures and backgrounds with remarkably different working and thinking styles, talents, perspectives and life and career experiences. Furthermore, by encouraging gender diversity in a country like Pakistan, where women participation in the workforce is low, P&G has encouraged females to step out of their homes and make a contribution to the economy by becoming part of the workforce.
