Johnson & Johnson
Straight for Equality in the Workplace
Caring for the world, one person at a time, inspires and unites the people of Johnson & Johnson. We embrace research and science - bringing innovative ideas, products and services to advance the health and well-being of people. Our approximately 128,000 employees at more than 275 Johnson & Johnson operating companies work with partners in health care to touch the lives of over a billion people every day, throughout the world.
People and values are our greatest assets. We know that every invention, every product, and every breakthrough we’ve brought to human health and well-being has been powered by people. Not ordinary people, though, but people whose personal values drive them to make a difference in the world. We believe the shared values embodied in Our Credo help us attract and keep the most talented values-driven people in the world.
Diversity is a central part of the cultures across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. It’s a key to our people’s passion for improving the health and well-being of people the world over. Further, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is deeply rooted in the values instilled by Our Credo and is exemplified in a number of our companies’ programs and activities. For the LGBT communities, this has translated into consistent, multi-year support of national and local programs and organizations that support this same mission. We are also proud to have been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in 2014 with a perfect Corporate Equality Index score, our ninth consecutive year of such recognition.
We recognize that differences in age, race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, thinking style and background bring richness to our work environments. Such differences help us connect better with the health needs of people in communities around the world.
We believe that attracting, developing and retaining a base of employees that reflects the diversity of our customers is essential to our success. We also believe success hinges on relationships with diverse professional and patient organizations, civic groups and suppliers.
Accepting the award on behalf of Johnson & Johnson is Alex Gorsky, Chairman and CEO.
