Films make up an important part of the internal communications strategy of most large businesses, and Johnson & Johnson is no exception. However, what sets them apart from many other large businesses is the kind of video production company they choose to procure from.

Inside Job Productions (IJP) is a social enterprise which creates training and employment opportunities for offenders and ex-offenders. By offering accredited training, transferable skills and internships in media, IJP provide prisoners on day release and ex-offenders with the tools to help turn their lives around.

Johnson & Johnson is one of the Founding Members of Social Business Partnership (SBP), and SBP is helping their subsidiary companies, such as Janssen UK, to bring social enterprises into their supply chains. SBP brokered a contract between IJP and Janssen UK for video production work as part of Janssen’s communications strategy, and this work will help to support the employment of a production assistant trainee recently released from Downview Prison in Surrey.

The contract led initially to two days filming and editing, with more work commissioned since. Managing Director Naomi Delap described the work as “…a very exciting contract for Inside Job Productions.  By helping us build a demonstrable track record with Johnson & Johnson it could open the door for work with other large businesses.”
