This has been a really regarding programme. Watching the interns grow from the early days with their nervousness and cautiousness about joining the team into well-rounded young people who are confident at work, it’s just been great.
Our intern team has also approached me. A number of individuals have approached me to say how good they think it is that we’re involved in this programme because they have friends or relatives who have special educational needs and they understand the challenges that they face in their future.
The greatest benefit has been to our wider team morale. They really feel great about the fact that they’re making a contribution to the intern’s development.
The programme has been really successful. At the end of the first year, we gave the interns full time contracts and I think they will make excellent employees for Henry Schein and they have a great future.
In the second year, we’ve extended the programme to include the administrative departments too. I would say to any business, get involved in this programme. It is so rewarding, there really isn’t a downside.
