PZ Cussons Plc is a FTSE 250 listed Consumer Products Group based in the UK, with operations in Africa, Asia and Europe. PZ Cussons operates in Africa, Asia and Europe with its strategy built on four core principles.
We operate in selected markets that have the potential for future growth, both in mature and emerging markets. Our presence across Africa, Asia and Europe ensures a naturally balanced portfolio of global markets, which we continually review to ensure they provide the Group with the best opportunities for profitable growth. We take pride in our knowledge of local markets which enables us to respond quickly and appropriately to local needs.
Our prime business objective in Nigeria is sustainable and profitable growth and our drive to be world-class in every aspect of our business life will be relentless.
To achieve this, we have adopted a Strategic Business Unit (SBU) structure, in which each SBU has clear focus on its markets; developing a deep understanding of the needs and aspirations of its consumers and the dynamics of the marketplace, which it can exploit to deliver its objectives.
Our business policies, systems and actions (procedures and processes, corporate and personal ethics, corporate image, employee development, equality of opportunity, remuneration, services provided to distributors etc) are harmonized between all our SBUs, ensuring the sharing of best practice and operational synergies.
By combining our financial strength and the commercial acumen encouraged at all levels amongst our people, we are positioning ourselves to seize profitable new opportunities within our chosen sectors.
We firmly believe that our people are our greatest asset. As we strive for world-class standards in every aspect of our enterprise, our employees are encouraged to manage and delegate appropriately, to accept responsibility and to recognise that they are both empowered to act and accountable for their actions.
Our long term people development programme has the clear objective to improve the quality of our management resource both by development from within and by external recruitment.
Exactly in line with the policy of our parent Group, our commitment is to establish a working environment which is based on a transparent meritocracy and the full engagement and involvement of excellent people.
