Investing in Talent Development with Walmart U.S.
Over the last five years, Walmart U.S. has been at the forefront of employer investment in skills-based hiring, upskilling, and reskilling. The company has put digital devices in the hands of 740,000 employees; implemented new approaches to digital skill development; and launched Live Better U, which allows associates to earn a high school diploma, vocational certificate, or college degree 100% tuition free.
Walmart U.S. President and CEO John Furner joined NSC CEO Andy Van Kleunen and a panel of thought leaders for a dynamic conversation about employer investments in talent development. They discussed talent investment across different industries, and how large corporations as well as small and mid-sized companies are partnering with policymakers to invest in the skills of their workforce to adapt to constantly evolving technology.
