ABOUT Johnson & Johnson
The values that guide our decision making are spelled out in Our Credo. Put simply, Our Credo challenges us to put the needs and well-being of the people we serve first.Robert Wood Johnson, former chairman from 1932 to 1963 and a member of the Companys founding family, crafted Our Credo himself in 1943, just before JohnsonJohnson became a publicly traded company. This was long before anyone ever heard the term corporate social responsibility. Our Credo is more than just a moral compass. We believe its a recipe for business success. The fact that JohnsonJohnson is one of only a handful of companies that have flourished through more than a century of change is proof of that.
Ten Days in Kenya: A Johnson & Johnson Employee Gives Back
Posted by: Devon Eyer
Happy New Year to our blog readers! We’re kicking off 2013 by sharing a story about one of our employees, Melissa Katz, and her journey to Kenya to volunteer with the WISER school for girls.
Here’s what Melissa has to say:
The people who work at Johnson & Johnson are a special breed. We take our responsibilities seriously. “We have a responsibility to the communities in which we live and work and to the world community as well.” These are not just words on a page. We live it. We offer days off for volunteerism for employees to contribute to their community. Where and for what cause we volunteer is up to us.
Dr. Sherryl Broverman from Duke University tells us that if you want to end poverty, prevent disease, end hunger there is a one-size-fits-all solution: Educate a girl. I am a well educated woman. It wasn’t even a question that I would go to school past age 13 and then go to college. That is far from the situation in Muhuru Bay, Kenya.
Melissa will be blogging about her journey at www.educateagirl.blogspot.com. We hope you’ll follow along.
