Our mission statement

As the most widely diversified company in the health care field, Johnson & Johnson places a high value on holistic responsibility – a defining component of our corporate philosophy in Switzerland.


People who work in health care are responsible for the well-being of people – the focus of Johnson & Johnson’s global business activities. Every day, our products – including baby care products, pharmaceuticals, vitamins, products for quitting smoking and healing wounds and medical technology devices – touch the lives of over a billion people.

This huge responsibility calls for strong principles. Our guidelines are anchored in the internationally applicable credo drafted by General Robert Wood Johnson in 1943. An integral part of our corporate philosophy, they play a decisive role in our business practices in Switzerland. Our credo obligates us to make the needs of the people we work for a top priority. We take on responsibility for customers, employees, the community and shareholders. Our credo applies to all business units and represents standards that all employees of Johnson & Johnson have internalized and continue to observe throughout the world.
