McKesson Named One of the Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion

July 13, 2021

Earned a top score for the third year in a row

IRVING, Texas, July 13, 2021— For the sixth consecutive year, McKesson is honored as one of the “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” by Disability Equality Index (DEI). McKesson also earned a top score of 100% for displaying best-in-class commitments to culture and leadership, accessibility, strong employment practices, community engagement and supplier diversity.

“McKesson is deeply committed to supporting a diverse, open and welcoming workplace that enables us to advance health outcomes for all,” said Dr. Kelvin Baggett, chief impact officer, McKesson. “The work is never finished but we’re honored to be recognized for our efforts and progress around disability inclusion by such an impactful and meaningful organization.”

Launched in 2015, the DEI is acknowledged today as the most robust disability inclusion assessment tool and has become a nationally recognized benchmarking report for businesses to gauge their level of workplace inclusion. The DEI is based on an annual survey that measures an organization’s adoption of inclusive policies and practices for people with disabilities.

“I used to shy away from disclosing or identifying my impairment because I feared that companies would see my disability as a struggle and not hire me,” shared Salley Martinez, inside controls specialist for McKesson. “McKesson helped me get over that fear and is a company that is consistently striving to be better – whether it’s continuous education on the various disabilities, creating an inclusive workplace or ensuring I have the tools to be successful.”

McKesson continues to build on its inclusion and diversity efforts and has been named a “Military Friendly Employer” by GI Jobs five years in a row and recognized as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for the last eight years.
