Employee Health and Wellness
As the largest health care company in the world, enhancing the health and wellness of our employees is a logical extension of our corporate mission. It is our belief that promoting employee health and wellness makes good business sense by increasing productivity and engagement while decreasing health care costs and providing personal benefits to our workforce.
Our Healthy People program provides Employee Assistance, Occupational Health and Wellness and Health Promotion services, all of which have expanded globally since 2005. Additionally, we now offer a full suite of online resources through HEALTH MEDIA™ and a unique approach to increasing physical and emotional capacity through the HUMAN PERFORMANCE INSTITUTE™ and its CORPORATE ATHLETE™ Energy Management principles.
Healthy People 2012 Goals
For many years, we have used a voluntary employee Health Profile to help us design our health programs to address key employee health risks. The profile is a confidential questionnaire that identifies health and lifestyle risks including tobacco use, blood pressure, cholesterol and inactivity. In 2009, more than 30,000, U.S. employees participated in the Health Profile screening, which has been underway for more than 10 years. The Health Profile has been translated into 36 languages, and we plan to deploy it in other countries in coming years. An analysis of our U.S. data revealed that the top three risks among our employees are unhealthy eating, physical inactivity and obesity. To reduce these risks, we have implemented health and wellness programs and established company-wide performance goals.
Some programs working toward these goals include:
• Move and Make It Matter – Participating in physical activity at least four days a week is a key component of good cardiovascular, respiratory and emotional health. Yet balancing busy lives and work can be challenging. Johnson & Johnson deployed the expertise of wellness professionals, mental health counselors, occupational physicians and nurses to create Move and Make It Matter, which provides tools for increasing physical activity. For example, employees receive pedometers to track the number of steps they take each day toward a goal of 10,000 steps daily, a recognized standard for improving health. Since 2004, more than 36,000 pedometers have been given to employees.
• Eat Complete –Providing healthy food choices at our facilities requires a close partnership with our food service professionals to ensure that employees can enjoy nutritionally sound, whole foods at every cafeteria, food station, vending machine and catered event. Our Eat Complete program is being offered at more than 85 percent of our U.S. operating companies.
• Health Media Digital Coaching -- These personalized interventions include:
-Weight management and physical activity programs that encourage healthy food selections, increased physical activity, and developing a positive self-image
-A complete dietary analysis of all daily food intake
• On Site Fitness Centers staffed with wellness professionals to support individual training regimes
• At Home Support through discounted healthy lifestyle programs (such as Weight Watchers, Gym memberships, and other assistance) and exercise reimbursement.
Johnson & Johnson occupational health programs work to protect employee health while on the job. A key goal is to prevent work-related injury or illness or manage the impacts if it occurs. Ensuring compliance with local laws and regulations is also critical.
Many Johnson & Johnson facilities have on-site occupational health clinics. These give employees immediate access to trained medical personnel for injuries or illnesses, provide medical and health education or referrals and assist operating companies in complying with local rule and regulations.
Employee Assistance Program
From time to time, life presents personal and professional challenges that may feel overwhelming. The Employee Assistance Program provides free professional, confidential behavioral counseling to employees and their families. This includes organizational coaching to help managers promote a positive and engaging atmosphere within the workplace and to provide psychological assistance. Special emphasis is placed on building personal resilience through workshops and interactive seminars, as well as through individual and family counseling.
