“Personal and moral integrity is one of our basic fundamentals and it has to start with each of us.”
– Sam Walton, Founder of Walmart
“…what should concern investors is whether the long-term culture of Walmart – obsessed about costs and making the numbers – has created a situation where all through the ranks people are feeling the need to walk closer to ethical, and possibly legal, lines.”
We believe in creating a real culture of transparency in order to hold America’s largest private employer to the highest legal and ethical standards. Everyday managers, executives, auditors, contractors and suppliers work hard to make Walmart the top retailer in world. Yet, often these efforts are undermined by the lack of internal controls. In recent years, ethical and legal standards have fallen short, jeopardizing the company’s reputation and hurting its financial performance. In some cases, internal reporting is discouraged or inadequately addressed.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You can help to put an end to unethical and illegal practices that may be occurring and make Walmart the company we know it can be.
