Luann – HR Generalist: Innovation is the name of the game in our distribution center. Without the innovation and technology that Walgreens went out and pursued to put into this distribution center, we would not be able to employ the number of individuals with disabilities that we do in Anderson. And honestly, if the distribution center weren't as successful as it is, I might not even be able to work there. So innovation, as far as Walgreens goes, has made a huge difference in my life and my job.
Veranice – Senior Beauty Advisor: The new store in itself is an innovation. In particular, we have a new position called the Store Team Leader. This person is in charge of various different duties. On top of knowing a lot of different aspects of the store and how they work, it's also a new position to aspire to.
Kathy – Director of Nursing: I think that the one innovation I've been a part of is that we developed an ambulatory infusion suite, and now they're called alternate treatment sites. But what we've done is treat patients who weren't able to receive their medication in their home, perhaps due to an insurance issue, or who weren't able to get the drug at all because the government or some other payer source said it had to be given in a different setting. And so we've seen our volume with that double as each month goes by. And then also there's the whole issue with pumps and homes: people wonder how they are going to do this IV at home, and then when you teach them how to do the pump or put on an extension tubing and show them that they can reach the end of their PICC line, they're just so excited, and for them that means they don't have to stay at the hospital, they don't have to go to a nursing home, and they can be where they can get better in the best way, and that's at home. There's no place like home.
