Study Shows the Benefits of Walmart Education Effort

A study from Lumina Foundation and Walmart shows how Walmart’s Live Better U employee education initiative improves outcomes for associates and for Walmart. The report focuses on measurable impact for participating associates and includes disaggregated outcomes by race and ethnicity. Specifically, it shows how Walmart’s employees of color use and benefit from the program alongside white colleagues. The analysis narrows in on Walmart’s hourly associates, who constitute 94 percent of its total workforce.
