Proctor & Gamble Expands Workforce

February 22, 2008

Proctor & Gamble is expanding its back-office operations in Costa Rica, adding 150 employees to open a Regional Center of Business Transformation for the Americas.

The new hires will join 1,200 employees the multi-national company already has in Costa Rica working in back-office accounting and services positions.

The move comes despite a widely signaled shortage of highly trained professionals in the Costa Rican labor market. Proctor & Gamble officials said in a statement that it is exactly because of Costa Rica’s highly trained work force that it is expanding.

“The profile we look for to work in this area are innovative people with experience and training in project management and information systems,” said Alejandra Cobb, Proctor & Gamble’s head of public relations for Costa Rica.
