This paper discusses how CVS' human resources department put a pharmacy technician training program into place that was strategically designed to help alleviate the growing time burden placed on CVS' pharmacists by developing qualified assistants.

From the Paper:

"The training program's success has been carefully tracked using quality control statistical measures since its inception in 2002. "[It's] one of the benchmarks that we use around gauging our success," comments its developer, adding that the program has significantly reduced overall employee turnover. CVS' pharmacy technicians have apparently flourished under the program. The CVS technicians lead the industry on their scores of passing the Pharmacy Technician Certification Boards. CVS technicians have the highest passing rating of any drug chain. More than 90 percent of those individuals enrolled in the CVS technician program pass the industry test. Striving to have the best pharmacy technician and the best pharmacists in the business make life easier for CVS customers. (Johnson, 2002) "
