What is the Finance Leadership Development Program (FLDP)?
The Finance Leadership Development Program (FLDP) is a two-and-a-half-year global program focused on developing future leaders in Finance. To accomplish this mission, participants in the FLDP are placed in positions where they will be challenged, learning core accounting and financial analysis. FLDP participants will have the opportunity to learn and demonstrate leadership skills in areas such as teamwork, risk-taking, and initiative, while demonstrating their core values and adherence to the Johnson & Johnson Credo.
Most FLDP participants rotate through one 18-month and one 12-month assignment at various companies within Johnson & Johnson. During the rotations, FLDP participants will be exposed to various parts of the finance function that could include, but not limited to, Business Unit Finance, Accounting, Tax, Supply Chain and R&D Finance. Each assignment provides an excellent learning experience and an opportunity for FLDP participants to utilize their leadership skills and bring new perspectives for change and process improvement to the J&J companies. Being an FLDP participant exposes you to an expanded network of contacts.
Prior to the program start date of Jan 2025, FLDP’s will receive up to six months of “on the job” onboarding . FLDP offers 5 weeks of in-person training with all global program participants at our J&J World HQ in the US (COVID protocols permitting) during the two-and-a-half-year program to assist in the development of our future leaders. The courses are taught and led by internal J&J management as well as external instructors. In training, the FLDP class enhances their written and oral presentation skills , problem-solving techniques , analytical skills , leadership skills and much more. Overall, training covers areas that are critical to success at Johnson & Johnson and gives the FLDP participants an opportunity to gain the skills necessary to become leaders for tomorrow.
