Who we are

We’re 37,000 entrepreneurs, all inspired by a vision of a world where people are healthier and live better. At the heart of our rapidly growing consumer health business is a passionate desire to help people feel better. We invest in research and development to find new ways for people to look after themselves, their families and homes.

Why we’re here

We believe there's a better way to do business – we like to call it 'betterbusiness'. Socially, environmentally and financially, we act responsibly and sustainably. We believe passionately in doing things the right way, and we believe the better way helps us deliver high quality products that touch consumers each and every day. Health is no longer just the absence of illness, it’s being able to lead a fitter and happier life. Our responsibility is to help people achieve this, while making the right kind of social and environmental impact. That’s what we call betterbusiness.

What we stand for

We follow a set of values that help us realise our purpose and vision.

Achievement

We practise outperformance.

From each individual team member to global financial goals, we consistently outperform. Targets aren’t created to be hit, they exist to be exceeded.

Entrepreneurship

We dare to be different.

We create fresh approaches and new thinking to advance new ideas that help millions of consumers around the world.

Partnership

Leveraging relationships for outperformance.

Partnership is in our DNA. We surround ourselves with exceptional individuals and organisations to change the game in consumer health.

Ownership

Doing whatever it takes to make a difference.

In an environment of high autonomy and accountability, we all take ownership. Individually and collectively, we’re all accountable for our impact on the world.

How we help

Life is changing, getting faster and more demanding. We provide solutions that help people deal with these new challenges. This is why we’re one of the fastest growing companies in one of the fastest growing markets – we drive consumer health forward through innovation.

In fact, we’ve redefined the consumer health market by combining our in-depth consumer knowledge with the speed of decision making we’ve gained in FMCG. Our culture of entrepreneurship puts ideas ahead of hierarchy, so we get the best ideas developed rapidly. This is why our brands are market leaders in most categories.
