P&G builds long-time teammates

November 1, 2002

Albany-- Procter and Gamble has changed dramatically over the past thirty years, but some faces have stayed the same. Many long-time employees and their kids have grown up with the paper giant.

"If anybody has concerns, they can just add it to the list, all right. Thank You." Geneva Nether has spent close to 30 years of her life here at Procter and Gamble. "When the line started up, I was the first person to push the start button to start the line up."

Nether started out with little mechanical skills, making $3.45 an hour. Now she's the Bounty safety resource. "It's a variety of people in this plant, so if you're working close with someone with other skills, You get those skills and pick them up from them."

"I see your gloves, wearing safety glasses. How's everything going today?" William James has spent 23 years at P&G-- practically his entire career. "Get older, kids grown. I think about when I first started being 20 something years old. I didn't think I would be here this his long."

James started doing what these guys do, now he's safety resource for ThermaCare. "Just like these people, I know where they came from, that's why I can interact with them so much."

Nether and James will continue to spread their knowledge by teaching newcomers. After all they were there once too.

Procter and Gamble has a team of more than 1,400 employees.
