Shouldn’t a company represent the people it serves?
Respect and dignity are key values at Walgreens, and are as much a part of our mission as providing convenient access to consumer goods, pharmacy, health and wellness services. As a company that serves a wide range of communities and customers, Walgreens believes wholeheartedly that we must afford everyone the same opportunity to build a rewarding career, along with the support and training to grow.
Our more than 230,000 team members come from all walks of life and a variety of backgrounds. They bring different perspectives. Fresh thinking. Unique talents. And each individual delivers true value to our company, giving us the understanding we need to serve an equally diverse customer base effectively and respectfully. Diversity at Walgreens is more than simply good business – it’s the only way to do business.

What if you could find your own way with the support of an entire company behind you?
Support comes in many forms at Walgreens. One of those is our employee business
groups which are having a positive impact at our Deerfield, IL headquarters. These
groups offer opportunities for individuals who share similar experiences to network
across divisions, to build stronger connections to the company, to increase mentoring
relationships, and to support Walgreens diversity-related business efforts. Our
employee business groups encourage diversity, and promote education and access to
career development through group-sponsored programs.
Shouldn’t you work for a company that helps you have a great quality of life?
At Walgreens, we strive to give our customers the highest level of care. And as a company, we extend that same level of support to our team members and their families.
