Supporting Work/Life Balance
Our people make the difference at Colgate. That is why we continue to put programs in place to create a workplace that reflects our value of caring and our respect for our employees. As part of our commitment to our people, we continue to expand our work/life balance programs to encourage people to balance their work life with their personal life. We offer a number of benefits to help meet our employees' personal needs.
Some of our programs include:
- Near-site backup childcare centers
- Emergency in-home care for dependent children and adults
- Academic advisory services
- Tuition and education assistance
- On-site lactation rooms
- Generous adoption assistance programs
- Personal services for legal, financial, health and wellness advice
- Counseling services
Benefits may vary at different locations around the world depending on local laws, customs and employee needs. Our benefits strategy is to be at or above the 50th percentile in the countries where we do business. This means that for every 100 companies, 50 will pay more and 50 will pay less. For many benefits, we are in the 75th percentile or higher. Read more about our benefits.
We believe that our work/life balance programs and our concern for our employees' total well-being broaden the talent pool from which we can attract and retain the best people. We firmly believe that encouraging a balance between work and personal life not only increases employee satisfaction but also benefits our Company and enables us to more successfully meet the needs of our customers and consumers around the globe.
