Reckitt expands gender pay reporting to almost 70% of its global workforce
Reckitt (new name of Reckitt Benckiser group of companies) maker of popular consumer goods Lysol, Enfamil, and Mucinex, today published its most comprehensive gender pay report to date, providing data for ten of its major markets, representing almost 70% of Reckitt employees across the world.

Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of Reckitt’s purpose. We aspire to a workplace where everyone has room to be themselves. Our ambition is that our teams represent the diverse consumers we serve.”
