Walmart CEO Calls Company A "Path Forward And A Ladder Up" For Associates

While discussing what he called the "real Walmart" and "the real opportunity" that the company provides, Duke welcomed on stage dozens of associates from around the world, including five of his own direct reports, who represent:

  • the 75 percent of U.S. store management teams who started at Walmart as hourly associates;
  • the 180,000 associates at Walmart U.S. and Sam's Club who were promoted last year;
  • Walmart's commitment to increasing training and career advancement opportunities, including for one million women around the world;
  • Walmart's commitment and plan to hire 100,000 veterans over the next five years; and
  • the 300,000 associates who have worked at Walmart for over a decade.

Throughout his 18 years at the company, Duke said that he had learned a lot about Walmart associates and believes that who they are and how they do their jobs is exactly what customers want and expect.  Duke concluded, "Integrity, service to customers, family and community, the opportunity to build better lives for ourselves and our customers -- these are the ways that our people make the difference. They're why you're so special. And they're why I'm so excited about Walmart's future."
