WINDSOR — It’s no coincidence that more than 40 percent of the employees working at the Walgreens distribution center in Windsor have disabilities. Walgreens has made an effort to train and hire workers with disabilities, and the chain recently announced it had trained 62 Connecticut employees participating in its Retail Employee with Disabilities Initiative (REDI) since the program launched in November 2011. Among those, cheap tramadol had obtained jobs at Walgreens locations in the state as of late October, according to a company release. “This program teaches valuable career skills that give candidates the tools to be successful in any retail setting,” said Walgreens Market Vice President Skip Bourdo. “We continue to learn incredible things from everyone involved in this meaningful initiative and believe in the power of ability.” Walgreens, which was named 2012 Employer of the Year by the U.S. Business Leadership Network, launched the REDI program nationally in May.
