CAMPAIGN: Leader in Growth

CONTENT: Article

Our Prescription for a Better World framework is organized around three key pillars: building healthy communities (Health in Action), protecting the planet (Planet in Balance) and creating economic opportunities (Leader in Growth). Each pillar is supported by strategic priorities and goals.  

The focus of our Leader in Growth pillar is centered on 3 strategic priorities.

Safe, Rewarding and Inclusive Workplace
The backbone of CVS Health is our nearly 215,000 colleagues who contribute to our purpose of helping people on their path to better health. Many of them also contribute to their local communities outside of work by giving of their time and talents to causes they are passionate  about. We are dedicated to our colleagues and strive to create the kind of workplace environment where they feel safe, included and can thrive. 

Regulatory Compliance and Voluntary Standards are Met or Exceeded
Stakeholders, including stockholders, are increasingly demanding that companies have sound governance practices in place, are operating with integrity and are providing transparency on  their business practices. Some of the specific areas of interest among stakeholders include:  board independence and diversity; corporate public policy positions and political activities; and data security and customer privacy issues.

Supply Chain Responsibility 
Doing business with a broad range of suppliers spreads economic opportunities around, from diverse suppliers in the United States to vendors around the world. Companies are also expected to help mitigate potentially negative impacts by ensuring that their suppliers are upholding applicable laws and operating in accordance with their social and environmental compliance standards.
