Workforce Development Council

The long-term health of the medical supply chain industry depends on a robust workforce. HIDA has convened a Workforce Development Council to address this challenge. HIDA members interested in learning more about the council and the online job portal can reach out to ruthven@hida.org.

The Workforce Development Council has been charged with three key tasks:
  1. Identifying career paths in the healthcare distribution industry, so applicants can see how entry-level positions can mature into lifelong careers.
  2. Developing a diverse pipeline of applicants for internships and entry-level positions.
  3. Building and launching an online healthcare jobs portal in conjunction with the HIDA website, where prospective applicants can browse listings and apply for jobs.
