That's 43% more holiday hires than the retailer made in 2016.
This will allow Walmart to keep employees on-hand to help with the surge of shoppers without adding more workers through holiday hiring. Walmart notes that customers responded positively to its plan to skip out on holiday hiring in 2016. It’s possible that the system works better for the company because it gives customers access to employees that have worked for the store regularly and may be more helpful than seasonal hires.
With the holiday season approaching, retailers are gearing up for the busiest part of the year and it goes without saying that competition will be tough.
