P&G, Leaders Earn Recognition For Innovation, IT And More

Top 100 Global Innovators 

P&G was included in the Thomson Reuters 2012 Top 100 Global Innovators list. The IP & Science business of Thomson Reuters, the world's leading provider of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, honored 100 corporations and institutions around the world responsible for generating a sizeable amount of innovation.

All organizations with 100 or more “innovative” patents from the most three recent years were included. An “innovative” patent is defined as the first publication in a patent document of a new technology, drug, business process, etc. Because patenting an invention is expensive, and not all patent applications pass through the examination processes to become granted, the ratio of published application to those actually granted is a measure of success.

Companies on the list aren’t ranked by the number of patents, and so are shown by alphabetical order. See the entire list here:

Fortune Blue Chip Companies

P&G was recently named number 22 on Fortune’s list of Blue Chip companies. To make the list, a company must appear on at least four Fortune lists in a calendar year. P&G earned spots on the magazine’s Fortune 500 (#27), Global 500 (#86), World’s Most Admired (#2 in Consumer Food Products) and Top MBA employers lists (#18).

One of Best Saudi Companies To Work For

Earlier this month, Procter & Gamble in Saudi Arabia was ranked in the top three of the “Best Saudi Company to Work For” 2011 listing for the Private - Production and Manufacturing Sector category.

The award is recognition for the company’s outstanding workplace practices over 175 years and is based on the results of an employee survey and a review of company HR practices in many areas including training and development, corporate culture, work-life balance, compensation and benefits, and performance and rewards.
