Our Credo Values
|
| 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 Company’s founding family, crafted Our Credo himself in 1943, just before Johnson & Johnson 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 it’s a recipe for business success. The fact that Johnson & Johnson is one of only a handful of companies that have flourished through more than a century of change is proof of that.

View the video to learn more about Our Credo and how it lives in the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies today. Explore its history on our blog, Kilmer House, named for Dr. Frederick Barnett Kilmer, the first scientific director of Johnson & Johnson.|...
