P&G moves into new office at Surian Tower
After being based in Subang Jaya for 16 years, and 23 years since the company’s inception in Malaysia, Procter & Gamble (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has moved to Surian Tower effective this month, occupying a 15,000sq ft office space which houses over 100 employees.
In a simple but meaningful ceremony to mark the move, P&G Country CEO Yuri Hermida welcomed staff members, who dressed in traditional costume for the occasion.
Also present were P&G Group president for Asia Deborah Henretta, and P&G vice president for Asean Sam Kim.
Earlier, the VIP trio was ushered through the office space in true Malaysian spirit by the Malaysian Drum Symphony, before signing a commemorative plaque.
“The relocation demonstrates P&G’s continuous presence in the country, and confidence in the local economy and markets.
‘‘The new office will respond to the changing needs of our local operation and thus reinforces our commitment to improving the lives of our Malaysian consumers,” said P&G Country CEO Yuri Hermida.
In her address, Deborah Henretta noted that the diversity of ideas, experiences, race and gender were vital to the company’s ability to touch and improve the lives of consumers around the world.
“In our 172-year history, P&G has always valued people as our most important asset, and it is our diversity, shared culture and united purpose that are the defining elements that allow P&G to touch lives and improve lives every day,” she said.
Yuri also pointed out that employee feedback was a vital part of the moving process, having implemented their ideas towards making the environment more conducive for work.
The new, dynamic office also complements their ongoing one day a week work-from-home programme available for employees.
P&G’s new office is located on the 10th Floor of Surian Tower in Mutiara Damansara
