102-8 Information on employees and other workers
The culture of Johnson & Johnson, inspired and guided by Our Credo for over 75 years, continues to energize more than 136,000 individuals around the world to advance a shared purpose: to blend heart, science and ingenuity to profoundly change the trajectory of health for humanity.
Every one of us at Johnson & Johnson plays a role in bringing these values to life through what we say and do, the stakeholders we connect with and the people we serve. COVID-19 has tested us all; but in 2020, heart, science and ingenuity came together in incredible ways. From the delivery of our COVID-19 vaccine, to making it available on a not-for-profit basis for emergency pandemic use, to our Onsite Superheroes who kept our plants running so that we could continue to make needed products available to patients and consumers, to our thousands of employees who volunteered in their local communities, to every single individual who adjusted to remote working—Our Credo is visible in millions of daily actions from our thousands of colleagues. For more about how we protected employees through 2020, see the section COVID-19: Protecting Employees.
Our core set of leadership behaviors that define expectations for all employees underscores the importance of inspiring those around you to contribute ideas that challenge thinking, and to have the courage to test and learn, while demonstrating agility to drive and adapt to change. And in 2020, we witnessed these behaviors in practice every day at every level across our businesses and around the world.
Here at one of the world’s largest corporations, we have a considerable impact on the lives of many, including the employees of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. Our Credo values underpin our approach to leadership, management and human resources strategy and policy. They guide us to create a safe and caring workplace that embraces diversity, nurtures equity and inclusion, focuses on performance while providing the tools to succeed, ignites creativity, fosters collaboration and partnership, and recognizes and rewards contribution. By creating an organization in which people thrive, we create a corporation that helps society thrive.
