Colgate-Palmolive: Creating a collaborative work environment with Chrome Enterprise


Colgate-Palmolive is focused on Oral Care, Personal Care, Home Care and Pet Nutrition and reaches more than 200 countries and territories. Colgate teams develop, produce, distribute and sell health and hygiene products and pet nutrition essential to society.

To meet its goal to offer an innovative work environment, Colgate sought a new cloud-based productivity platform—one that would enhance collaboration, improve employee satisfaction, and help put the 200-year-old company at the leading edge of workplace innovation. Colgate-Palmolive chose Chrome Enterprise, Google Workspace, and the Chrome Browser for its worldwide workforce of 30,000.

Chrome Enterprise results

Cloud-based productivity leads to more worker collaboration

Apps and extensions can be managed for groups and individuals through Chrome Browser Cloud Management.

Fewer IT resources required for support and maintenance compared with previous systems.

Flexible, up-to-date workflow environment keeps employees happy and productive.

Inspiring new ways of working

Chrome Enterprise became the ideal platform to help transform productivity for Colgate-Palmolive’s global workforce and operations. Cloud apps and storage allow for easier collaboration and are easier to manage than on-premise systems. Chrome Browser Cloud Management helps the IT department manage app and extension use. To help workers do a trial run on the Chromebooks, Grab and Go racks were deployed at the company’s New York and New Jersey offices. To train workers on the new devices, Colgate-Palmolive created a global team of over 1000 Colgate “Google Guides”—tech-savvy early adopters within the company who run classes via Google Meet.

More than two hundred years after Colgate-Palmolive started doing business, we’re excited about the modern focus of our workplace tools. The Google tools that allow us to collaborate, also allow the company to succeed well into our third century.
