Our people Are our priority
Our associates are our everything, and Walmart Canada owes its success to their dedication. They are the faces of Canada, 100,000 strong. Every day, they provide an essential service within our communities and in return, we offer them not just employment but training, advancement, mentorship, wellness initiatives and more. We want them to feel supported, included and able to contribute in a meaningful way.
It’s part of our regeneration strategy. We call it our We Care Culture.
All associates have free, 24/7 access to virtual health and well-being resources. EQ Care quickly connects them with a doctor for diagnoses, prescriptions, lab requisitions and referrals. The Thrive ZP app encourages them to build long-lasting, healthy habits for fitness, food, money, family, sleep and gratitude, and creates a community where they can share and celebrate success.
