Since 2018, Walmart has been empowering its employees through its Live Better U (LBU) program. Now, the company is making everything LBU has to offer completely free of charge.
- LBU Alumni: The LBU program has helped over 52,000 associates begin and complete their journeys in higher education. This next phase will help another 1.5mm associates "earn college degrees or learn trade skills without taking on additional debt."
- Worth the price: That's a commitment of $1b over the next 5 years for its employees' "career-driven training and development".
