Initiative Seeks People With Disabilities for Employment

Walgreens, the nation's largest drugstore chain, has launched an initiative to hire people with disabilities at its new distribution center in Anderson, South Carolina, and is recruiting through a new, specially designed Web site.

Walgreensoutreach.com describes jobs available at the Walgreens distribution center and is designed to be accessible by people with sensory, physical, and cognitive disabilities. Initially, Walgreens will hire more than 200 employees, with plans to ramp up to more than 600 employees. Walgreens' goal is to have at least one-third of the workforce consist of employees with a variety of disabilities working in a fully-integrated team. This "real work for real pay" environment will be competitive employment in which performance standards must be maintained. Job openings at the Anderson distribution center include a number of management positions.

For potential employees considering relocating to Anderson, the site also has information about Walgreens' partnership with 13 local disability agencies. Knowing the difficult challenges faced by people with disabilities who want to work, Walgreens designed the Web site to address concerns such as transportation, housing and the effect of gainful employment on Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, or Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
