The Johnson & Johnson family of companies is a company of enduring strength. We credit our strength and endurance to a consistent approach to managing our business, and to the commitment of our people.

As an international "family of companies", we are big and we are small all at once. Throughout the world, our employees operate in decentralized structures in independent, specialized subsidiaries. This gives them constant access to the knowledge base and financial resources of a large group of companies. Our local subsidiaries have immediate insight into new, emerging customer requirements, scientific developments and technologies. This knowledge is also used to launch innovative products and, sometimes, create entire business segments. We comprehensively apply our research and marketing skills and production experience, in all segments.


Managed for the long term
Sustainability is very important for the future of our family of companies. While keeping corporate responsibility for the next generation in mind, we make sure our companies balance the short term and the long term in their strategic planning. We constantly review key economic, environmental, and employee health and safety indicators to ensure we are on the right path.


Employee performance
Our proven business model is the blueprint for Johnson & Johnson’s success, but it is, first and foremost, powered by our employees. Every breakthrough we have accomplished is the result of the hard work of our employees. The values described in our credo help us to attract the most talented people in the world. They are the most important part of the Johnson & Johnson family.
