The Johnson & Johnson Credo, first introduced in 1943, documents the company’s social responsibilities to its customers, employees, communities and shareholders. Not only are the company’s individual social responsibilities outlined in the Credo but it also puts an obligation on all Johnson & Johnson companies to provide opportunities for their employees to fulfil their own Credo responsibilities. There are some organisations, charities and projects that we only support financially because of certain circumstances i.e. the nature of their work etc, however, in selecting other projects we look at the opportunities available for our employees to get involved as one of the main selection criteria.
Over the years our projects have focused on many areas including education, health, and disability, and we continue to work to identify new partnerships that will enable our employees to participate, contribute and personally develop.
