Will Walmart's New Satellite Kick-start the Smarts?
RetailWire Discussion: Walmart takes entry-level worker training outside its stores
Through its just-announced training initiative, Walmart has taken a leadership role in decentralizing functions in situations when bringing additional focus could make all the difference. Like @walmartlabs that came before, Walmart's training center has the potential to transcend training and serve as an incubator for new ideas and store-level processes. And just as with @walmartlabs, the benefits will extend beyond Walmart as others retailers rise to the occasion and as trained associates migrate to other retailers. In the meantime, the effort should enhance Walmart's employee retention and leadership development.
