Who we are

Introducing Reckitt

It’s a big moment in our history. As RB becomes Reckitt. Our purpose remains the same - to protect, heal and nurture in the relentless pursuit of a cleaner, healthier world.

Our world is constantly changing. So it's reassuring to know that there are some things we can always trust to help us take the best possible care of ourselves and the ones we love.

This trust inspires us. We’re a diverse, global family of over 43,000 people united by one passionate purpose: a cleaner, healthier world for all.

We are Reckitt. Home to the world's best loved and trusted hygiene, health and nutrition brands.

Taking care of our world

Now more than ever, we all understand the importance of hygiene. Cleanliness is at the heart of our own good health – for us, our families, friends and communities.

Here at Reckitt we understand the huge role we play in this. We are committed to helping everyone take the best possible care of the world we all share.

Every day, millions of people put their trust in our products. We work with relentless energy and innovation to make the best possible products we can. And then we make them even better. We protect, heal and nurture. It’s how we make a difference.

We never stop innovating

For us, the true value of innovation is in its power to help people and the world. That’s what has inspired our research, development and partnerships for over 200 years.

We’re proud of our history and the sustainable way our business has grown and flourished, to become the leading global consumer hygiene, health and nutrition company it is today.

Together, our future starts here.

What we stand for

We are what we are, and we do what we do, thanks to five core values that drive our purpose of healthier lives and happier homes.



Responsibility: Doing the right thing, even when it’s hard

Honesty and integrity are at the heart of everything we do. They motivate us to do the right thing, even when it is hard, and they ensure that the safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers are always our priority. Only by holding ourselves to the highest standards can we help others fulfil their dreams in a sustainable way. By being a good company, we have become a great company.



Ownership: Owning your own ideas, driving your future

People at RB have the freedom to succeed and the opportunity to make a difference. Every person who works at RB knows that our company is their company and that the possibilities for innovation and success are endless. They do not wait to be told what to do. They own their ideas and take the initiative to drive themselves and RB forward. Ownership is what makes RB a unique business and a better business.



Entrepreneurship: Having the courage to disrupt the status quo

Entrepreneurs use their imagination, creativity and passion to turn ideas into action. They ask why – and why not? They find effective new solutions with limited resources and champion bright ideas irrespective of who thought of them. Entrepreneurs add value. At RB our entrepreneurs make our warehouses, our offices, our IT systems, our factories and our laboratories better. We couldn’t be who we are without them and we respect and reward them for having the courage to disrupt the status quo and do things differently.



Achievement: Being your best and pushing for better

Achievement is more than success. It is about trying and failing and learning. It is about performance and purpose. It’s about acting decisively, and at speed. And it is about giving it your best and then reaching higher, pushing to be even better – what we call “outperformance”. Your achievements create lasting value; it’s central to our success and we recognise and reward it.



Partnership: Working together to make great things happen

We recognise that we will never have all the answers on our own, so we seek out trusted, like-minded partners to help us be the best we can. Our partners are our equals and share our philosophy and values. We treat each other with respect and integrity. We are direct, open and honest with each other, saying what we mean and doing what we say. This leads to constructive dialogue, which inevitably delivers the best solutions.
