There are more than 127,000 people who work for Johnson & Johnson in our businesses around the world.
Of those, about 37.4% work in North America, 30.7% in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, 18.8% in Asia, and 13.1% in Latin America.
Financial stability has been our one of our strengths for decades. We’ve raised our dividend for 54 years in a row, and Johnson & Johnson remains one of only two U.S. companies with a AAA credit rating from the credit rating agency, Standard & Poors.
In 2015, we invested $9 billion in research and development across our businesses.
We have access to the industry’s leading science, which when applied against our consumer insights, our disciplined research and investment, and our portfolio management enables us to build an industry-leading pipeline across our company.
Through our Johnson & Johnson Innovation JLABs venture, we’re incubating more than 140 innovative companies in six different cities across the globe—and there’s a waiting list for new partners at each locale.
