Social Media Policy
New technologies provide P&G with unique opportunities to build our business and to listen learn and engage with consumers, stakeholders and employees through the use of a wide variety of social media.
More and more of our employees and partners are using social media in their daily work. As we increase our use of this medium, it’s important to understand that the many laws around the world regulating what P&G can say about the Company, our brands and our products apply in social media, just as they do in all other business interactions.
P&G has developed a Global Social Media Policy that describes the principles for its use, as well as standards & procedures for employees and partners when they use it as a key responsibility of their job, for collaborating internally and externally, or in their personal life. If we could boil down our policy into two key points, they are: 1) Use good judgment and 2) follow our Purpose, Values and Principles and all applicable laws.
We make this policy available to you externally as well so that you know the high bar we set for ourselves to be honest and truthful in our communications as well as to protect any content that may be posted by visitors on our social media sites. Internal to P&G we have more specific procedures and toolboxes to help our employees comply with our policies.
