Inclusion Makes Our Businesses Stronger
At Argus Janitorial, the effect is constant: Inclusion makes our company more innovative and productive. Quality scores, on-time delivery, productivity, and customer satisfaction have reached all-time highs.
Walgreens experienced 20% more efficiency in their Anderson, South Carolina distribution center after adapting it for people of all abilities. Based on that success, Walgreens have rolled out a ‘retail employees with disabilities’ program nationwide. They have experienced the same effects of productivity, quality, and profit improvement that Northwest Center has, and they want more.
