promotions and other marketing vehicles to build awareness and trial of our brands and products in conjunction with our sales force. We believe this combination provides the most efficient method of marketing for these types of products. Product quality, performance, value and packaging are also important differentiating factors.

Government Regulation. Our Company is subject to a wide variety of laws and regulations across the countries in which we do business. In the United States, many of our products and manufacturing operations are subject to one or more federal or state regulatory agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). We are also subject to anti-corruption laws and regulations, such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and antitrust and competition laws and regulations that govern our dealings with suppliers, customers, competitors, and government officials.

In addition, many foreign jurisdictions in which we do business have regulations and regulatory bodies that govern similar aspects of our operations and products, in some cases to an even more significant degree. We are also subject to expanding laws and regulations related to environmental protection, non-financial reporting and diligence, labor and employment, trade, taxation, and data privacy and protection, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and similar regulations in states within the United States and in countries around the world. For additional information on the potential impacts of global legal and regulatory requirements on our business, see “Item 1A. Risk Factors” herein.

The Company has in place compliance programs and internal and external experts to help guide our business in complying with these and other existing laws and regulations that apply to us around the globe; and we have made, and plan to continue making, necessary expenditures for compliance with these laws and regulations. We also expect that our many suppliers, consultants, and other third parties working on our behalf share our commitment to compliance, and we have policies and procedures in place to manage these relationships, though they inherently involve a lesser degree of control over operations and governance. We do not expect that the Company’s expenditures for compliance with current government regulations, including current environmental regulations, will have a material effect on our total capital expenditures, earnings, or competitive position in fiscal year 2022 as compared to prior periods.

Human Capital. Our employees are a key source of competitive advantage and their actions, guided by our Purpose, Values and Principles (PVPs), are critical to the long- term success of our business. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had approximately 101,000 employees, an increase of two percent versus the prior year due primarily to business growth. The total number of employees is an estimate of total Company employees excluding interns, co- ops, contractors and employees of joint ventures. As of June

30, 2021, 49% of our employees are in manufacturing roles and 26% of our employees are located in the United States.

We focus on attracting, developing and retaining skilled, diverse talent, including recruiting from among the best universities across the markets in which we compete and are generally able to select from the top talent. We focus on developing our employees by providing a variety of job experiences, training programs and skill development opportunities. Our employees’ holistic growth and full engagement is particularly important, as we primarily have a develop-from-within model for staffing our senior leadership positions. We aim to retain our talented employees by offering competitive compensation and benefits, strong career development and a respectful and inclusive culture that provides equal opportunity for all.

As a consumer products company, we believe that it is important for our workforce to reflect the diversity of our consumers. We also seek to foster an inclusive work environment where each individual can bring their whole self, which helps drive innovation and enables us to better serve our consumers. We aspire to achieve equal gender representation globally and at key management and leadership levels. As of June 30, 2021, 40% of our global employees are women. In the U.S. workforce, we are progressing towards our aspiration of 40% multicultural representation overall as well as at management and leadership levels. As of June 30, 2021, 26% of our U.S. employees identify as multicultural.

Our compensation plans are based on the principles of paying for performance, paying competitively versus peer companies that we compete with for talent and in the marketplace, and focusing on long-term success through a combination of short-term and long-term incentive plans. We also offer competitive benefit programs, including retirement plans and health insurance in line with local country practices with flexibility to accommodate the needs of a diverse workforce.
