We leverage the power of CVS Health to create economic opportunities and value across our communities.
Investors aren’t the only people benefiting from our success. More than 240,000 colleagues enjoy a safe, rewarding, and inclusive workplace every day. As part of our Leader in Growth initiatives, we will have transitioned 100,000 people from public assistance to meaningful jobs and career paths at CVS Health by the end of 2016. And thanks to our scale and reputation, we’re a valued recruiting partner in our communities. For example, CVS Health will become the first company permitted to open shop on a military base for recruiting purposes when our hiring and training center launches in 2016 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. CVS Health has long demonstrated a commitment to supporting diverse suppliers, including minority- and women-owned enterprises, disability-owned enterprises, and many others. We spent $913 million on goods and services provided by such companies in 2015. Moreover, we teamed recently with Roger Williams University to launch the CVS Health Executive Learning Program for Diverse Suppliers. It offers training opportunities and the chance for diverse business leaders from across the country to expand their skill levels and growth potential in areas such as management, technology, finance, and human resources.
