We’re a pharmacy innovation company and every day we’re working to make health care better
Millions of times a day, close to home and across the country, we’re helping people on their path to better health.
We’re reinventing pharmacy to have a more active, supportive role in each person’s unique health experience and in the greater health care environment—from advising on prescriptions to helping manage chronic and specialty conditions to providing quality walk-in medical care and pharmacy benefits management.
Because we’re present in so many moments, in ways that are more affordable and effective, we’re able to positively influence health behavior and shape the future of health care for people, businesses and communities.
Health is everything.
Each and every day, CVS Health serves millions of customers of all ages and from countless walks of life. In order for our businesses to thrive, it’s vital to have a workforce that reflects our customers, as well as the communities they live in. As a pharmacy innovation company, we pride ourselves on having a workforce as diverse as our patients, customers and communities, and providing an environment that empowers all of our colleagues, regardless of their differences.
We have developed a strategic approach to diversity management that includes four primary objectives and touches every aspect of our business.
Workforce Representation – Reflecting the marketplaces we serve and the demographics of our communities.
Colleague Engagement – Leveraging workplace relationships by creating and sustaining a culture of inclusion.
Talent Systems – Creating and optimizing policies, practices, programs and procedures that enable talent management.
Marketplace Diversity – Ensuring alignment with and engagement of all key external customers, clients and communities.
Our holistic approach to leveraging the differences and similarities our colleagues bring to work every day has also garnered some recent accolades that we are very proud of. In 2014, our company was named one of DiversityInc’s 25 Noteworthy Companies, one of the Top 10 Companies for Veterans and one of the Top 10 Companies for Employee Resource Groups. Additionally, we’ve been recognized by organizations such as CAREERS and the Disabled Magazine, LatinosForHire.com, LatinaStyle and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for our approach to diversity management and as an employer of choice.
“There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not impressed by how diverse our workforce is and by how that diversity transforms the communities we serve; but more importantly, how that appreciation of differences is a non-negotiable part of our culture, one that isn’t forced, but willingly achieved together.”
