Johnson & Johnson (J&J), which has a major presence in High Wycombe, has been named Britain’s Healthiest Company and recognised as having Britain’s Healthiest Workforce following the UK’s largest wellness survey.
Johnson & Johnson picked up the two awards after taking part in the joint initiative between The Sunday Telegraph, Mercer and VitalityHealth.
The Healthiest Workforce award considered factors such as such as environment, staff engagement and participation, and company culture. Johnson & Johnson’s entry covered all three of its business sectors based in the Thames Valley area, including Janssen in High Wycombe.
In line with the values set out in its company Credo, J&J has developed a company-wide health and wellbeing strategy, including a number of programmes and practices to help its people feel as healthy good as possible during work and at home.
Mark Hicken, Managing Director at Janssen, the pharmaceutical company of Johnson & Johnson based in High Wycombe, said:
We are extremely proud to be named Britain’s Healthiest Company and Workforce. As a leading healthcare company we aim to advance the health of people across the world, and where better to start than with our own employees.”
Johnson & Johnson is the largest single investor in life sciences in the UK, supporting more than 17,000 jobs either directly or indirectly. I’m glad we have a strong J&J presence in our town and I congratulate the company on this award.
