WITH THEIR COSTUMES and dream jars, Janssen staff must really have seemed like big friendly giants when they arrived dressed as Roald Dahl characters for a day of activities at a special-needs school. Work means a lot to staff at this pharmaceutical provider (85% positive, a top-10 score among mid-size firms on this list), which has care at its very core. Janssen has 475 UK employees based in High Wycombe, and is part of a global organisation itself owned by the US healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson. Children are not the only beneficiaries of Janssen's philanthropy. This year it set up a programme to encourage more young adults to pursue further education and career opportunities in maths and science. Thirty Janssen employees have volunteered to act as mentors for this cohort of students, and many more appreciate the business's strong social conscience (88%, a top-10 score). www.janssen.co.uk
