Developing associates in 27 countries around the world is not an easy feat. Walmart, a Skillsoft customer, needed a global development program to improve finance and business skill levels across their global finance organizations. Most of their international markets had no development resources available for their Finance Associates, and it was becoming increasingly important to provide opportunities for growth and advancement.
To provide growth opportunities, Walmart offered a blended learning approach, both elearning and instructor-led, for functional training to all levels, to Finance Associates in their native languages. The goal of the training was to build financial acumen for all associates, leveraging the elearning portal across all areas of Walmart, regardless of functional area.
