RB in a nutshell

Our vision is a world where people are healthier and live better.

Our purpose is to make a difference by giving people innovative solutions for healthier lives and happier homes.

This means we are expanding our capabilities and investing in innovation to stay ahead of the game.

This vision and purpose have enabled us to transform ourselves from a household cleaning company, the Reckitt Benckiser of three years ago, into a consumer health and hygiene company, the RB of today and the future.

Beating the competition

Consumer health is growing and nobody is growing faster than RB. In fact, we are now the world’s #1 consumer health and hygiene company.

Our financial figures speak for themselves. Year after year we have consistently delivered the fastest growth in our sector. In 2014, we saw another year of outperformance, with net revenue of £8.8bn. Like-for-like growth was at 5%, despite continued challenging market conditions, driven by operational changes, improved go-to-market initiatives and a sharpened portfolio focus including the acquisition of K-Y.

Targeting growth

Self-care products are set to grow as population ageing means many more people living with acute chronic health problems. Pressures on healthcare systems are coming at a time where people also want to be more empowered in protecting, maintaining and enhancing their own health. They want self-care. The world needs more and better consumer health products and we need more experts to help us deliver success.

RB produces some of the world's most popular consumer health medicines, including Gaviscon, Nurofen, Scholl, Mucinex and Strepsils, and medical devices like Durex and Scholl. Our growth outpaces the competition by three to one and that is due in large part to the innovations we bring to market. 

RB is harnessing the power of consumer and medical excellence to inspire success in the regulated environment of consumer health.

Innovation – our winning formulas

Within these fast growing categories we invest disproportionately in our 19 Powerbrands. 16 of these 19 are now No.1 or No.2 worldwide. We top the leaderboard for our rate of product innovation – on average, 30% of revenue comes from innovations launched in the last three years. Since 2000 we have consistently outperformed our industry peer group.

Our future success, just like our success so far, will depend on the commercial drive, ingenuity and ambition of our people. If you have the certain edge to give us the cutting edge, we invite you to join us.
