We have a very active employee Veterans Leadership Council at Johnson & Johnson, and in partnership with them, we’ve had an exciting year supporting our servicemen and women, and their families in 2014. Here’s a snapshot of the work we’ve done this year:
In February, we were pleased to announce our partnership with American Corporate Partners (ACP), a unique non-profit organization dedicated to assisting U.S. military veterans in their transition from the military to the civilian workforce. Johnson & Johnson Chairman and CEO Alex Gorsky was also featured in a public service announcement encouraging people with business skills to share their valuable experience and guidance at ACP-AdvisorNet because “their service deserves our service.”
In April, Johnson & Johnson signed on to be the Official Healthcare Partner of the USO. Over the course of this three-year partnership, Johnson & Johnson will support and sponsor USO programs that offer direct aid, comfort and support to transitioning troops and their families.
That same month, we were honored to participate in the official opening of the USO Warrior and Family Center at Naval Support Activity Bethesda, home of Walter Reed National Military Medical.
