Last October, Walmart announced improvements in reducing out-of-stocks and store cleanliness after it raised wages for associates and invested in training. Last October, 75 percent of Walmart locations met the company’s internal goals for customer service compared to just 16 percent a few years earlier. Better pay and training has also contributed to a reduction in employee turnover.
