Walmart to offload 570 office workers onto outside company
BENTONVILLE, Ark. - Walmart Inc. is transferring 570 finance and accounting employees at its Arkansas headquarters to an outside company that will help manage part of the retailer’s financial operations.
New York-based Genpact will hire all the workers who wish to make the move and will keep them in Bentonville, where Genpact is leasing a building on Walmart’s campus.
The Arkansas Democrat-gazette reports that employees were told of the move Thursday and that it will take effect Nov. 28. It says a Walmart official said the company made every effort to ensure the workers will have the same jobs at Genpact, with comparable pay and benefits.
