8:30-9:15 Walmart is the world’s largest retailer, and this is how consumers traditionally think of them, but did you know they process billions of transactions on their ecommerce site? Or that the technology they create is what enables them to remain competitive? By developing cutting-edge technology; from what their app can do to behind-the-scenes tech that enables them to do business faster and more effectively, there is no doubt they are also a finance and technology company – and that directly affects how they brand themselves.For Walmart, candidates are consumers so it’s especially important that communication is authentic, candidate experience is exceptional, and loyalty isn’t negatively impacted during the hiring process. In addition, they need to be able to attract STEM talent to remain competitive. In this session, Ray Malouf will share how Walmart handles their multiple employer brands in order to reach their desired talent, how they are adding STEM to their image, and how they protect the candidate experience throughout it all.
