No doubt about it, being a working mom can be tough. We realize that working while raising kids asks a lot of our associates, which is why we’ve prioritized creating great jobs that provide access, flexibility, stability and opportunity — all aimed at making Walmart the place for working moms. That includes unique resources, benefits and much-needed recognition for our associates, no matter what phase of motherhood they’re in.
Here are a few of the ways we’re celebrating the moms we have the privilege of working alongside.
At Walmart, we prioritize our associate family by making it easy for them to prioritize their own families. We support new moms with up to 16 weeks of paid leave for eligible U.S. associates to welcome a child into their family and provide that special time to bond.
Our new moms tell us their paid maternity and parental leave benefits allow them the time to adjust to the demands of motherhood, without worrying about work, just like Walmart market manager and new mom, Arianna Bonutti.
