A core driver of Sam Walton's vision was exceeding customer's expectations through an inspired, dedicated team of associates. Walmart has long been a place where people can start in an entry-level position and build a career, and today, we strengthened our company's commitment to opportunity. The company is creating a series of bold initiatives to help associates in the U.S. earn higher pay and advance their careers based on the skills they learn and the customer service they provide.

In addition to the changes with Walmart's workforce, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation will commit $100 million over five years to help fund programs designed to create career paths in retail and related industries (e.g. logistics, hospitality, wholesale) and train thousands of workers outside of the company.

While some of these programs are ready to roll out to associates, some are still in a pilot phase and will be modified based on associate feedback. We expect to roll out most of these programs broadly over the next year.

When you add all of it up, here's what you will get. A job at Walmart comes with good wages and a clearer, merit-based path to promotions and raises. It will come with scheduling that works with an associate's life. It comes with access to competitive healthcare and 401(k) benefits, bonus incentive opportunities and discounts. It includes education and training opportunities that are relevant whether an associate stays at Walmart or chooses another path.

Our goal is that there will be no better place in retail to learn, grow, and build a career than Walmart.
