Several years ago, we met our Veterans Welcome Home Commitment to hire 250,000 Veterans by 2020. Since 2013, we’ve hired more than 400,000 veterans and military spouses at Walmart and Sam’s Club. In the last quarter alone, we hired almost 30,000 veterans and military spouses – more than we ever have in a single quarter in the company’s history.
Once we hire veterans, it’s important to keep them engaged. Through SERVES, our veteran and military spouse Associate Resource Group (ARG), we ensure these associates stay connected by sharing helpful resources and holding regular networking and education events. This ARG was originally a group for campus office associates, but is now expanding to associates working in our stores, clubs, distribution centers and fulfillment centers.
Advance all veterans and military spouses’ economic opportunity and well-being
