Walmart has met, and exceeded, its associate hiring goal during the pandemic:
“That initial goal to hire 150,000 new, mostly temporary associates soon rose to 200,000, then 250,000. As of mid-July, Walmart has hired more than 400,000 new associates, split almost evenly between men and women and representing practically every demographic. One thing almost all of them have in common, however, is why they joined: the historic, lightning-quick impact of COVID-19 on businesses across the country.”
P.S. Walmart does a lot for its associates. Improved morale leads to improved product sales. If you want to optimize your relationship with your Walmart or Sam’s Club buyer, help is available. Get in touch with our experts today.
