To cultivate an engaged workforce today, a company must provide healthy and safe working conditions, career development and training opportunities and recognition programs. Research shows investments in employee health care, development and engagement can improve productivity, spur innovation and attract and retain top talent. Among the challenges facing the U.S. health care sector is the need for more employees with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills and expertise. There are more jobs than there are candidates for these highly skilled positions, including positions for pharmacists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

Employees are the foundation of CVS Caremark's business and we are committed to fostering a culture that encourages creativity and innovation. We are a company that makes recognizing people for their contributions a high priority. We also develop and offer job programs for individuals with barriers to employment and invest in partnerships and initiatives that promote interest in STEM careers. We do this to help ensure there is a pipeline of qualified pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurse practitioners and other professionals who will play a critical role in our competitiveness and growth. 

Whether our colleagues work in our stores, our pharmacies, our clinics, or in our many corporate offices around the country, they all share one thing in common: An understanding that our success is also theirs.
