Robert Wood Johnson (1893 — 1968)
"It is the job of modern management to give the people they employ a full sense of security growing out of accomplishment and performance, as well as a declaration of purpose."
Robert Wood Johnson was one of the 20th century's most innovative business leaders. He had a close and caring relationship with his employees at Johnson & Johnson, writing a one-page credo of corporate responsibility that said customers should come first. His employees came next. He built Johnson & Johnson into the world's largest and most diversified health care company. Under his leadership, BAND-AID bandages and Johnson's Baby Powder were introduced and became internationally popular. Upon his death, he left his entire fortune to create The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation America's largest health care philanthropy.
