Johnson & Johnson Introduces Social Enterprise’s
Soap to UK Washrooms
ohnson & Johnson is working
with Sodexo to introduce soap
from CLARITY to its UK staff
washrooms, supporting employment
of blind and disadvantaged staff at
the social enterprise.
Johnson & Johnson has introduced
CLARITY hand wash to all staff
washrooms across their Pinewood office
in Wokingham. The move marks the
beginning of a partnership with the social
enterprise and Sodexo that will see
CLARITY hand wash being introduced
to other sites across the UK.
The product has been trialled at the
Pinewood office and there are plans to
assess the potential for a nationwide
rollout across all Johnson & Johnson UK
offices. It is estimated that the company
will create thousands of hours of
employment, equivalent to 11 new parttime jobs per year.
This has the potential to be hugely
beneficial at CLARITY where 80% of the
employees are blind or disadvantaged.
Founded in 1854, it is the UK’s oldest
social enterprise and it currently creates
more than 10,000 days of work per
annum for the staff. Deals with
companies like Johnson & Johnson are
vital for helping CLARITY support as
many people as possible.
Commercial at CLARITY said: We are
delighted to be supplying to Johnson &
Johnson and look forward to rolling out
our products to more of their offices, it is
already making an enormous difference.
Each new corporate customer we can
supply to has the potential to create
thousands of hours of employment for
our blind and disadvantaged employees
so we need more companies to follow
Johnson & Johnson’s lead and help us
transform lives.
Rhoda Steel, UK Corporate Social
Responsibility Lead, Johnson & Johnson
said: Here at Johnson & Johnson, we
are committed to incorporating social
enterprises into our supply chain as part
of our Social Impact through
Procurement programme. For us,
