No greatness without goodness

Like every parent of a disabled child, Randy Lewis fears for the future of his son. Randy was a seniour executive at one of the largest and fastest growing retailers in America. If his distribution centres did not deliver efficiently and economically, Walgreens could not serve its customers and would lose out to competitors. Randy's motto is "what's the use of having power if you don't use it to do good?". He set out to create an inclusive workplace where people with disabilities could thrive in jobs with equal pay and conditions, held to the same standards as those without disabilities. No Greatness Without Goodness tells how Randy and his team achieved their goal, the impact it had, and how companies throughout the world like Boots and M&S have been inspired by this example.
