Starting and continuing to work with enthusiasm. That is what Janssen wants to achieve for every employee by means of an HR policy built on the House of Work Ability. In 2013 the company selected this Finnish HR policy concept.


The House of Work Ability represents someone's work ability and all the factors affecting it as a house. The roof is the work ability, the extent to which someone has the eagerness and strength to set to work. It is supported on 4 different floors, the determining factors: health, competences and talents, standards and values, and work. All are intrinsically connected by means of a stairway through the house. A strong work ability will occur when the four floors are well-balanced and interlinked. 

Janssen chose this concept because it is in perfect line with its corporate vision. The HR policy is aimed at creating sustainable and flexible careers. With work that matches the different life stages and with an eye for talent and an adequate private life-work balance. Janssen offers a growing number of initiatives as building blocks for the House of Work Ability. Like programmes for doing exercise, flexible workplaces, leadership and talent 

The HR policy is aimed at creating sustainable and flexible careers.


Janssen takes responsibility for its employees, patients and the local and international community.
We therefore work on deploying talent in a sustainable way and take care of the physical and mental health of personnel and their safety and continuing training.

Patient associations receive support from Janssen so they can realize their projects independently. Janssen pays special attention to young persons (training), informs local residents and becomes involved in local projects.

Access to and the affordability of health care are a core international theme at Johnson & Johnson and Janssen, who also support specific philanthropic projects.
