P&G Gives Tips on Inclusive Practices for A Breastfeeding-friendly Workplace

Going back to work after giving birth is a challenging experience especially for a breastfeeding mom, and her infant. Proper support or accommodation in the workplace makes this more achievable and fosters inclusivity for working moms. P&G Philippines, known for its equality and inclusion practices, shares how they enable this at work. 

The company intentionally planned for well-appointed breastfeeding rooms in its sites. These are private and clean spaces where mothers can express breastmilk, and store in a refrigerator. The cubicles are equipped with tables and comfy chairs, and outlets for electric pumps. 

For Jewel Co-Villanueva, P&G's Women's Network Leader and Financial and Accounting Director, and a new mom herself, "The mothers' rooms are like an extension of my home where I can easily clean my equipment and store breast milk while keeping my privacy. Having these rooms are comforting and welcoming for moms returning to work. It shows us how the company practices equality and inclusion and respects our personal needs."

"P&G's mothers' room enabled moms to still meet work demands while continuing their breastfeeding journey during business hours. Provisions like this also enabled people we work with, like managers and colleagues, to be aware of a breastfeeding teammate's needs," she added.

Over the years, P&G has been intentional in its programs, practices and policies that help remove barriers for employees to have equal opportunity to perform at their peak. For field-based working moms such as those in Sales, the company supports their need by providing a driver or separate vehicle so moms can continue to express on schedule while on the road. 

P&G's "We See Equal" commitment to champion equality and inclusion in the workplace and beyond is geared so everyone can be their authentic selves and perform at their peak. P&G Philippines' gender ratio is a strong balance of 53% female and 47% male across the organization, and 54% female and 46% male even at the more senior levels.
