To our valued suppliers,
Given the recent unrest in the U.S. and around the world, we hope, now more than ever, that this message finds you, your teams, your families and your communities safe and healthy. The health and safety of all of our stakeholders—of which you are an important part—is always our most important priority.
Throughout the COVID-19 global health crisis, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies has continued to meet the needs of the patients, customers, consumers and employees who depend on us. This is no small feat, and we could not have done it without you. Doing and being our very best every day has meant more to us in these recent months, and we value your contributions as we strive towards this goal.
Together, we are finding and creating new ways to think about what it means to care for humanity and challenging ourselves to innovate in ways that deliver a better world for human health and safety. These outcomes are built upon a long history of trust and mutual respect for the talents of our respective teams. During these times we have quickly embraced a common, practical wisdom towards priorities and have accelerated the exploration of the value of new tools and the ways we work.
We have always considered our suppliers to be an extension of our supply chain and our workforce. Nothing we do would be possible without the hard work and commitment of each and every one of you.
The days ahead in this journey require all of us to lead with a deeper understanding of the human experience and embrace the lessons of our current situation in building a better future for everyone. At Johnson & Johnson we are so fortunate to have Our Credo to guide us in our mission. We are also fortunate for a supplier business partner community that is a true reflection of Our Credo principles.
Sincerest thanks and appreciation,
Chief Procurement Officer
Johnson & Johnson
