Our Culture

Our Principles
  • At Church & Dwight, our culture is rooted in an inclusive and collaborative environment. We believe it’s the most effective and efficient way to ensure success for our business… and our employees.
  • We have found maintaining a small, flat organisation helps us stay fast-paced and agile. Employees are encouraged to take initiative and ownership and our structure gives them the opportunity to make an impact regardless of title. Our goal is for everyone, at every level, at every location, to be engaged in the business.
  • We pride ourselves on fostering an entrepreneurial spirit where action is encouraged. We are extremely competitive externally, but not internally. Open and honest communication among departments, functions and employees builds a mutual respect that enables us to challenge each other, leading to an ever more cohesive team.
  • Historically we have had significant success driven by our culture of Blue Collar, High Aptitude, and we have historically been an Underdog amongst giants. However, going forward we are now focusing on Digital, being Diverse to represent our customers and being Disruptive through risk taking to compete in the market.
  • Our 6 key behaviours to deliver our 2020 strategy are Digitally Savvy, Positive Attitude, Simplify, Aim High, Helping Out and Disruptive. These are easily understood and can be applied at any level and in any role in our every day work and for delivering our future.
  • The result is a strong, motivated group of employees that take pride in our company and our brands. Together, we are dedicated to sustaining the top-tier performance that will take our company to increasingly higher levels.

OUR DIVERSITY

At Church & Dwight UK, we’re committed to providing our people with equal opportunity in employment, development and advancement. We respect the individual talents of each employee, and we foster open, welcoming working environments.

We are proud of our Gender Report which confirms that our Median Gender Pay Gap is significantly below the UK’s Median Pay Gap. You can read see our full report here.

OUR CULTURAL JOURNEY

We are committed to an ongoing cultural journey, focused on continuing to make Church & Dwight UK a great place to work, on employee recognition and on ways of improving our working environment. This has included physical changes such as a revitalised canteen and working spaces, as well as employee benefits improvements such as a health cash plan and holiday buying/selling scheme.

We continue to focus on our cultural journey, regularly gathering employee feedback through pulse surveys and leading changes through cross-functional employee focus groups.

Our Employee Activities

Church & Dwight UK’s Social Committee was formed to plan and undertake a range of activities and events designed to encourage employee interaction beyond regular work across our UK sites.

Popular events include our annual company fun day and our Christmas Party, as well as ad hoc activities such as a Christmas trip to Lille or Go Karting event.
