USA: Procter & Gamble confirm job cuts
Procter & Gamble (P&G) today confirmed media reports that it intends to cut its global workforce as part of an on-going restructuring plan. The consumer products group said it would reduce its workforce by about 9,600, equivalent to 9% of P&G's workforce. Over 40% of the reductions will be in the US and about 60% outside the US. P&G anticipate that two-thirds of the reductions will come from non-manufacturing roles across all levels in the company with one-third coming from manufacturing projects. Manufacturing reductions will include both plant closures and further consolidation of production modules.
