The 2011 Johnson & Johnson Annual Report is out today and -- as the hard copy version makes its way to our shareholders through the mail -- I wanted to share the online versions with everyone. This year, in addition to providing the online digital version of our Annual Report, we also produced a video overview for the first time. So anyone interested in our Annual Report can read it in print, browse through it online and watch highlights from it on video. And by the way (or should I say BTW?), the employee who’s hosting our ennTV special Annual Report edition is the person who managed the production of the Annual Report. As you might imagine, planning and producing an Annual Report is a massive undertaking, but it’s one that’s approached with enthusiasm at Johnson & Johnson because of the opportunity to tell stories about what our employees have been working on around the world –work that carries forward our now 126-year old tradition of caring for people. Our 2011 Annual Report illustrates the ways in which Johnson & Johnson continues to bring meaningful innovation to patients and customers worldwide. During 2011, our 125th anniversary year, the Company strengthened its product portfolios, addressed health care needs around the world, and advanced its product pipelines, which today are some of the best in the industry. Some of the highlights of this year’s report are a look at scientists in Janssen Research & Development and Crucell organizations who believe there are no limits to what science can do; features on patients in South Africa, the U.S., Germany and England who are all leading healthier lives because of innovations brought to market by Johnson & Johnson operating companies; a look at Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies employees in Japan who, after last year’s earthquake and tsunami, worked tirelessly to re-establish support and supplies to the patients and families who were in need of our products; and stories highlighting some of the community partners we work with to help make a meaningful difference in the lives of people around the world. Here’s the online digital version of our 2011 Annual Report. And here’s our video overview: You can also follow our @JNJComm, @JNJStories and @JNJVideo Twitter accounts, as we attempt to tweet the 2011 Annual Report in 140 characters or less.
