The employees of Johnson & Johnson are the heart, mind and soul of our Company. For more than 130 years, our employees have been the impetus of sustainable growth of our business, the embodiment of a spirit of ingenuity, and will continue to serve as the driving force in delivering on our bold aspiration to change the trajectory of health for humanity.
The success of Johnson & Johnson depends on our employees, so we focus on hiring top talent and maximizing their potential through a comprehensive human resources strategy. It starts with Our Credo, which unifies our global, multi-generational workforce around the purpose and principles we’ve espoused since the beginning of our Company. The strategy is organized around three fundamental focus areas: attracting and recruiting the best and most diverse talent; developing and retaining talent through a broad array of learning and development experiences; and empowering and inspiring our people through innovative engagement initiatives and programs. Underpinning these focus areas are ongoing efforts to cultivate and foster cultures of diversity and inclusion, innovation, health and employee safety across our Company.
Our ultimate objective is to nurture a workplace of choice for everyone willing to contribute to the Johnson & Johnson mission. We take great pride in the fact that opportunities for self-realization, professional growth and expansion of one’s horizons are limitless at our Company. The breadth and depth of our enterprise—along with the support, tools and resources we provide—offer our people the opportunity to build a varied and diverse career across the full spectrum of human health.
