Long gone are the Mad Men days when you could retire to a spacious, private office between meetings. The open office trend is here to stay, and for good reason: the layout can foster collaboration, a livelier interchange of ideas and a greater sense of belonging to the team. Surrounded by coworkers, even Don Draper might have spent less time moodily staring out the window.
Last fall, GOJO released our fifth annual sustainability report, What Matters Most. This report shares with all GOJO stakeholders – customers, team members and partners – our sustainability story and the progress we have made. It focuses on the areas that matter most to our stakeholders – creating Sustainable Value through collaboration, product innovation, our commitment to sustainable chemistry and more.

It’s the end of January and students and teachers have all settled in following winter break. And, not only are they bringing home with them new lessons and memories, they are all bringing along some winter germs. Yes, school is back in session, but sneeze and sniffle season is too.

It’s not only cold and flu season, it’s also norovirus season.
Sometimes called the “stomach flu,” norovirus is the most common cause of acute viral gastroenteritis around the world, and the most common cause of foodborne illness in the United States1. Unlike some other infectious diseases, we can get norovirus time and again, and the average person will experience a norovirus infection five times in their life1.
Nature is all around us. For many of us, we may find solace in nature - peace, tranquility and inspiration. And for those of us who are working in biomimicry, we also find inspiration in nature – inspiration to create and innovate. Yet, we cannot innovate alone. Collaboration is a key driver of innovation.

This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), are raising awareness and understanding of the urgent global problem of drug resistant bacteria. The public health goal is to spark the change that is needed to ensure antibiotics are used only when necessary and prescribed by a health professional. Raising awareness will also remind all of us to use primary actions like hand and surface hygiene to prevent infections, so the need for considering antibiotics is reduced.
