Johnson & Johnson opens new Asia Pacific Headquarters in Singapore
New regional headquarters will boast a Design Lab, Leadership Lab, and Human Performance Institute, and will lead collaborations and partnerships to co-create new global healthcare models which are at the forefront of innovation.

Johnson & Johnson Asia Pacific Pte Ltd have opened their new Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore, a 15,800 sq. meter facility that will bring together more than 1,000 employees from Johnson & Johnson’s pharmaceuticals, medical devices and consumer businesses in one single location to spearhead new ideas and frameworks for healthcare of the future.

The regional headquarters will boast a Design Lab, Leadership Lab, and Human Performance Institute. Johnson & Johnson’s Asia Design Lab will be the first design lab outside of the United States.

Mr. Ernesto Quinteros, Chief Design Officer, Johnson & Johnson, said: “Design thinking is at the center of all our innovation and brand experience efforts. By applying its framework, the Lab aims to fuel and inspire ideas that not only tackle some of the toughest healthcare challenges, but also connect with patients, customers, consumers and employees.”

Singapore has also been selected as the location for Johnson & Johnson’s first global development center known as the Leadership Lab. The Leadership Lab aims to conduct over 200 leadership development classes and train 4,000 Asian leaders annually. As a think-tank, the Leadership Lab will create links with universities, research groups, governments, healthcare organizations and other partners to co-create new healthcare models and solutions to prototype capabilities required to author the next chapter of healthcare innovation in Asia.

The regional headquarters will also include Asia Pacific’s first Human Performance Institute (HPI). A first of its kind in Asia Pacific, HPI will offer its proprietary leadership development initiatives to participants outside of Johnson & Johnson, with the goal to train 150,000 people in Singapore by 2020.

By providing a broad base of products and solutions, Johnson & Johnson is committed to ensure that the next generation is even healthier than the last.
