Welcome McKesson Employees
A committee of your peers selected Minnesota Job Partners to provide Dislocated Worker Program services to you to help you through this transition. This is a free program of benefits provided by the State of Minnesota to help workers impacted by layoff get back to work - quickly.
Job loss can be a difficult time, our goal is to help you through it with knowledge, respect, and kindness. Almost all of us here at MJP have experienced a layoff. We bring real-world understanding and help to you during this transition. Our approach works: we have a strong record of exceeding the state's performance goals of getting a job, keeping that job, and earning high wages. In fact, our participants are earning almost $20,000/year over the State's standard on the wage measure of the current Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development's Program outcomes report.
MJP has a close relationship with Teamsters Joint Council #32 serving members throughout Minnesota. We have provided services to employees in the areas of transportation and logistics since the state Dislocated Worker Program was begun, and have served numerous employees of companies who handle medical equipment and supplies.
Everyone here at MJP is dedicated to supporting you in achieving your career goals. Our most important partner is YOU! We look forward to working with you.

Support You Can Count On
For many of us, experiencing a loss of income can cause a great deal of stress. How will I pay my bills? What if unemployment isn't enough to cover everything? What about health insurance? We are here to help! A portion of each grant is set aside for support services; we are the only provider with family service advocates, professionals whose sole focus is helping you with the financial and emotional side of job loss.
Our family service advocates work closely with a MNsure Navigator and Brokers who can help you complete the MNsure application and select a plan that will work for you & your needs. These professionals hold regular sessions on-site with us during open enrollment, and come facilitate special sessions for our clients who need it outside of open enrollment.
We can assist those in need with rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, car payments or repairs, and more. As a participant in our program, you are also eligible for three free mental health counseling sessions, and financial counseling sessions as well. Our advocates have over 20 years of experience in social services, are respectful, and incredibly knowledgeable about other services you may be eligible for.Whatever your concern, Minnesota Job Partners is here to support you with a caring team of professionals.
