(India) Ltd. today has one of the widest distribution networks in India – a logistical marvel that spans around 3.5
million retail outlets across the country, of which the Company services 9.40,000 outlets directly. The Company

sound worldwide financial strategy, has helped deliver consistent shareholder value. Colgate consistently increases
gross margin while at the same time reducing overhead expenses. The increase in gross margin and the reduction
in overhead expenses provide the money to invest in advertising to support the launch of new brands

Today, Colgate is a household name in India with one out of every two consumers using a modern dentifrice.
Consistently superior quality, innovation and value for money products emerging out of advanced technology
employed, has enabled Colgate to be voted ‘The Most Trusted Brand’ in India across all brands and categories for

Career Planning

One of the most important tools for grooming talent at Colgate is the 'Individual Development Plan'. Here an
employee assumes responsibility for his/her own career, identifies the competencies that indicate strength/areas
for development, discusses it with the manager and finally chalks the roadmap for future career path.

Here is the summary of the Individual Development Plan.


Today's business world is changing faster than ever. Organizations are rethinking, restructuring and reshaping the
way they do business. If there's ever been a time an employee needs to stay current, evaluate and sharpen
his/her skills, take steps to improve job performance, and map out the plans for the future, this certainly is it.

By taking responsibility for managing his/her own career, employees are in a much better position to achieve job
satisfaction. Plus, Colgate believes in Development Planning and fully supports individuals' efforts to achieve
professional growth, improved job performance and personal satisfaction.

Colagte has a Development Planning Toolkit which is designed to help the employee do all of these things. It is a
step-by-step guide that will take the employee through the process of identifying the key competencies, assessing
strengths and development needs, and determining specific actions to help him / her achieve career goals.

EMPLOYEES ROLE IN DEVELOPMENT PLANNING: It is the employee's responsibility to take ownership of his / her
career development. This means it is the employee's job to initiate and implement their own Development
Planning efforts by successfully completing the Development Planning process.

MANAGER'S ROLE IN DEVELOPMENT PLANNING: It is an employees' manager's responsibility to actively support

employees efforts. This means that the manager should carefully review this process, discuss them with his/her
superior, and give employee accurate, honest feedback in all areas.

THE ORGANISATION'S ROLE IN DEVELOPMENT PLANNING: It is Colgate's responsibility to provide the framework,
tools and resources that the employee needs. Senior Management is ultimately accountable for effective
development throughout the Company and it is their responsibility to encourage employee participation while
remaining focused on achieving business results.

The above process is centered around:

Managing with Respect Behaviors & Colgate Competencies Managing with Respect

Colgate's values are the foundation for individual, team, and company success. Only by respecting others and
living the Colgate values can we hope to achieve outstanding business results. By living the Colgate values of
Caring, Global Teamwork, and Continuous Improvement, people develop a sense that they are part of the Colgate
team, working together toward a common goal.

'Managing with Respect' is one important way in which we put these values into action. Even if an employee does
not have direct management responsibility, they are responsible for managing a relationship with others.
Managing With Respect creates an environment where people work well together, genuinely care about each
other, and help people to reach their full potential.

Colgate Competencies

"Competencies" is a term used to describe the skills and behaviors that contribute to outstanding job
performance. At Colgate, these competencies are grouped into two areas: Leadership and Functional/Technical

Leadership Competencies include those skills which align and inspire people to achieve business objectives. The
Leadership Competencies also consist of those skills and behaviors required to create strategies, motivate people,
