Last Friday (March 1, 2019) was Employee Appreciation Day in the U.S. and Canada. This day carves out time to take a moment and thank all the hard-working men and women who, frankly, make everything possible, in business, in government, in the non-profit sector, in the health sector. Everywhere.
We hear the names of leaders often. Mark Zuckerberg, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau, Arlene Dickinson. We know these names and associate them with power, with vision, with ideas, and with accomplishment. But none of them would be where they are today if not for tens of thousands of dedicated workers who take their vision and turn it into action. You know that saying “The devil is in the details”? Well, the leaders usually have the big ideas, but bringing them to life, getting those details just right, is another thing entirely.
This dynamic is no different at Express Scripts Canada. As an organization, we are a leader and an innovator in the area of health benefit management. We deliver the data analysis and insights that make it possible for employers to continue to deliver top-notch drug benefits for their employees, while reining in runaway prescription drug costs. We are also one of the faster-growing pharmacy networks in the country. But who makes that happen? It’s thanks to the tireless efforts of the talented men and women who are part of our team.
Here are just a few examples:
2019 brings its share of challenges for ESC. Prescription drug costs continue to escalate at an unsustainable pace, and we need to continue to deliver innovative products that will ensure the future of Canada’s drug benefit system. No small task. We will be implementing more innovative products an services in the coming years – and we are excited about it.
We will be asking a lot of our team in 2019 and the future, but we wouldn’t ask if we didn’t already know they’re up to the task. In fact, it’s thanks to the dedication and pioneering spirit of our team that we are able to continue to innovate and dream bigger dreams for the future.
This Employee Appreciation Day, we want to express our deepest appreciation and thanks for each one of the talented, dedicated individuals that make Express Scripts Canada the remarkable and dynamic organization that it is. We cannot do it without you.
