At Johnson & Johnson we believe that good health can change lives. In making the change happen, we start with our employees. They are our most precious resource, and caring for their health and well-being is a key component of our Company's culture. With a vision of having the healthiest workforce, we continue to apply new and innovative approaches to encourage and engage our employees in their own health (or personal best).
Johnson & Johnson has a strong track record in advancing the health and well-being of our workforce. We strive to create a culture of health among our employees worldwide, while allowing for individual choice and cultural variations. Expanding upon the prior efforts, our new Health for Humanity 2020 Goals have the following three areas of focus.
First Focus Area
Train employees via the principles of Human ENERGY FOR PERFORMANCE®.
Second Focus Area
Supporting and sustaining healthy habits with customizable, scalable digital health tools.
Third Focus Area
Creating an environment and culture that actively supports employees so the healthy choice is the easy choice, via advancing a culture of healthy eating and healthy movement.
These efforts are overseen by the Vice President of Global Health Services, reporting to the Vice President, Total Rewards, and ultimately to our Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer. The responsibility for their implementation is owned across the Company.
Training of our employees on the principles of ENERGY FOR PERFORMANCE® continued in 2016.
To engage our employees in their health via personal digital health tools, we launched Healthy & Me™, a dynamic mobile platform that lets users personally connect with their everyday health and well-being. Unique to Johnson & Johnson, Healthy & Me™ is a customizable way to engage with a range of health and fitness programs, such as an annual health assessment, digital health coaching, and the Johnson & Johnson Official 7 MINUTE WORKOUT® app. These tools utilize trackers to engage and encourage employees and their spouses via incentives such as sweepstakes prizes and/or charitable donations. Available in the United States and in countries where the majority of our employees are located, all global employees will have access to Healthy & Me™ within the next two years.
Leveraging Healthy & Me™, in 2016 we introduced Our Amazing Journey, our first-ever global activity challenge, which encouraged employees across the globe to improve their health via increased daily activity levels and engagement with their peers, their loved ones and their own personal health journey. Over the course of 45 days we evidenced unprecedented global employee engagement in this collective health challenge, which has helped to inform the future activities using this dynamic personal digital health tool.
To advance a culture of healthy eating and healthy movement, in 2016 we established a global baseline. Communication and implementation of practices, programs and policies for each of these will roll out in 2017.
