Today marks the launch of the Walmart Blog, and I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce you to some of the real people that make Walmart great. Here, you’ll meet our associates who serve customers in stores every day, military veterans who are building careers in retail, people working to improve the food we eat, and people who give back to their community. You’ll also meet people who are working to protect the environment, a story we began telling on The Walmart Green Room, and that will continue here.
We hope the blog will be a place where we can tell stories that matter, and have a little fun by introducing you to the Walmart culture. We’ll also announce news here, and likely tackle some tough issues at times.
With 2.2 million associates and almost 11,000 stores around the world, it’s easy to only focus on the big picture. Our goal with this blog is to tell real stories that you might not have heard, and our hope is that we can bring you a renewed perspective about our company.
On behalf of the communications
team, I’d like to thank you for visiting our blog and I hope you’ll make a
habit out of checking back in with us. More importantly, I encourage you
to share your thoughts. Like our founder Sam Walton said, “To succeed in
this world, you have to change all the time.” Your feedback will help us
make this blog the success we’re all hoping for.
