Talent for Good: Employees making a difference on the front lines of care
At Johnson & Johnson, among the most valuable resources available to us are our employees. As we look to build the skills and capacity of midwives around the world, and meet our Commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, the talents and passion of our 127,000 employees are playing a major role.
Johnson & Johnson EMEA employee Mariana Xavier spent six months in Nairobi with the Aga Khan Development Network, a longstanding Johnson & Johnson partner. This secondment allowed Marina to use her marketing and communications expertise to strengthen the skills of midwives and nurses in the region, helping to empower midwives to advocate for themselves and for their profession.
It’s a triple win: midwives on the front lines of care gain extra skills that allow them to make a difference in their communities, employees gain a life-changing experience, and Johnson & Johnson benefits from employees who return to their job rejuvenated and even more committed to a healthy world for all.
