Community Impact in Switzerland

ommunity Impact Switzerland aims to have a sustainable impact by addressing specific healthcare and societal challenges in Switzerland. We do this by investing in local, strategic partnerships and by empowering our employees to apply their talent for good to support local NGOs and organizations with their time, skills and expertise.

Talent for Good – How we personally get involved

Talent for Good aims to activate Johnson & Johnson employees at all stages of their career to make a meaningful and enduring impact on society while enhancing their skills and expertise and pursuing their passions.
  • Local skills-based volunteering
    Skills-based volunteering gives our employees the chance to support local NGOs with their knowledge and expertise while contributing to local impact in Switzerland. Skills-based volunteering means leveraging the specialized skills and talents of individuals to strengthen the infrastructure of non-profits, helping them build and sustain their capacity to successfully achieve their missions.

    Through engaging in skills-based volunteering, our employees are not only developing personally and professionally but also helping out a NGO to reach their goal - which makes the world a better place!
  • Community Week
    The Johnson & Johnson Community Week is the largest Talent for Good program in Switzerland. For one week every year, employees have the opportunity to get involved with local projects and charitable organizations, allowing them to give a helping hand and support the local community. Coming together to support the local community is a way of living our Credo, while connecting with colleagues from other teams and departments.
  • Special Olympics Switzerland
    As a Premium Partner of Special Olympics Switzerland our employees have the unique opportunity to volunteer in different roles during the Special Olympics National Summer and Winter Games, as well as local sports events. Giving our employees a chance to support athletes with intellectual disabilities from all over Switzerland to achieve their dreams, is a way to break down potential biases and to foster a world of inclusion.
  • Move for Charity
    Move for Charity is an annual charity activity, organized by J&J for our employees at multiple sites in Switzerland. The money raised goes partly to our international partner Operation Smile and partly to local organizations in Switzerland. Operation Smile offers children and young people with a cleft lip / palate access to free, safe surgical treatment in order to improve their overall quality of life.

Our Local Partnerships for a Lasting Impact

In order to address local health and societal challenges and to support the most vulnerable populations, we are partnering with different local organizations to co-create solutions and find ways of collaborating for a sustainable impact in Switzerland.
The Swiss Red Cross (SRC) is one of our key partners. Since 2014, we have supported the project ”Support for Caring Relatives”. The program aims to provide support and build resiliency by offering private caregivers who care for someone with dementia a chance to recover and build their skills through relief hours, education and peer-to-peer support. We also offer local support and engage with the SRC through different volunteering opportunities.
Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities. Since 2016, J&J Family of Companies in Switzerland is partnering with Special Olympics Switzerland (SOSWI). In 2020, J&J became a Premium Partner of the organization in order to further strengthen the collaboration and the focus on inclusive health and sports for all. Special Olympics strives to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people, values that closely align with those of J&J and our belief in Diversity, Inclusion and equal rights for all.
As a company where diversity, inclusion and equal rights for all people are cornerstones of our Credo, we believe in collaborating with businesses that have a positive social impact. We collaborate with Zuwebe and Altra Schaffhausen, two organizations offering employment to people with disabilities.
