Human Resources Development Program (HRDP) AssociatePosition Description
The McKesson Human Resources
Development Program is an exciting, two-and-a-half year development program,
designed to develop top MBA/MLIR graduates into exceptional leaders who will
make an impact on the future of healthcare. Associates will gain an
understanding of the broad scope of McKesson’s business and HR Operating model
through business unit rotations and HR functional roles.
The program consists of four rotations
within a span of two-and-a-half years. This time is spent in a Center of
Expertise role, a specialized role on our Shared Services team, a
cross-functional rotation and a HR Business Partner role. For example, an
Associate could work in a Talent Management team for 6-months, move into
Employee Relations the next 6-months, do a Finance cross-functional rotation
another 6-months and finish as an HR Business Partner within our McKesson
Specialty division for 12-months, thus completing the program.
Through various HR business programs,
processes and projects, our associates will have consistent and high exposure
to the top business leaders throughout McKesson, in the form of end-of-rotation
presentations to senior HR leadership or through working with them in a manager
or sponsorship capacity. Likewise, the program
will enhance personal career development through direct senior leadership
engagement, formal and informal feedback and mentoring and formal training and
development integrated with McKesson’s Center for Learning.
In addition, Associates will build a strong
knowledge of the business, products, technologies and services through various
connectivity and knowledge sharing meetings and opportunities to get closer to
different McKesson offices and distribution centers. Each year, Associates will
partake in two business learning trips, within United States or in
McKesson-established countries (i.e. Canada.) Associates will also have the
opportunity to participate in site visits, annual events, and ongoing
networking activities with other MBA students and HR peers.
