Veterans serving veterans.
Respecting, honoring and supporting McKesson’s veteran community.
McKesson takes pride in our active duty and veteran employees, which is why we were honored to receive the “Above and Beyond” award from the Department of Defense for providing support for employees’ military duty. Veterans are important members of the McKesson family and you will find veterans in every part of our business, from pharmaceutical and medical supply distribution centers to the executive management team.
McKesson’s nationwide employee resource group dedicated to veterans and military family members—the McKesson Military Resource Group (MMRG)—provides networking and mentoring support to McKesson’s employee veterans across the company. The MMRG ensures that the issues that are top of mind for veterans get the attention of McKesson business leaders. Additionally, MMRG members support company efforts to attract and develop veteran employees.
“It’s more important than ever to support our military members, their families and veterans. The MMRG is not limited to veterans and reservists—we also want moms, dads, sisters, and brothers of active duty service members to join, as well as anyone with an interest in supporting our troops” says Jim Walsh, Sr. Vice President of Government Sales and 26-year Army veteran.
McKesson serves veterans and military families by:
- Recruiting and developing veteran employees
- Identifying, supporting and participating in initiatives to support military families
- Fostering links with external organizations
- Supporting corporate goals to advance relationships with veteran-owned businesses
- Expanding employee veterans networks across McKesson
