CVS Health: A Thank You for Going Above and Beyond

Sometimes there are just not enough thank yous to suffice. 

The latest goes to our friends at CVS Health who announced recently they’re ramping up efforts to keep people stocked with the important medications and supplies they so desperately need. 

“The company plans to immediately hire 50,000 people,”’ wrote USA Today, “for full-time, part-time and temporary jobs, including store positions, home delivery drivers, distribution workers and customer service representatives.”

The news marks just one of the many ways the Rhode Island company has been stepping up to care for patients. And their commitment to employees is equally impressive, with the hiring announcement also featuring news about generous benefits – including 25 days of fully-paid back-up care – added to make sure employees can care for their own families even as they take care of customers.  

“Our colleagues have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to providing essential goods and services at a time when they’re needed most,” CVS Health President and CEO Larry J. Merlo said in a statement. 

“As they continue to be there for the individuals and families we serve, we’re taking extra steps to provide some peace of mind and help them navigate these uncertain times.”

To our friends at CVS…thank you.

It’s our honor to support your people and the important work you’re doing.
