How do you transform your company's business for the better?
Autism & Employment Forum 2012 Keynote Speaker Randy Lewis, Senior Vice President for Supply Chain and Logistics at Walgreens in Deerfield, Ill., was instrumental in introducing a new concept to Walgreens that transformed the company.
Walgreens’s two newest distribution centers employ an inclusive and integrated workforce composed 40 percent of persons with disabilities (PWD) who are held to the same work standards and earn the same pay as “typically-abled” fellow workers. As a result of this success of serving both shareholders and the community, all distribution centers now include people with disabilities.
Lewis will share his story of this company- and life-changing accomplishment with Autism & Employment Forum participants, noting that everyone has the ability to make a difference.
