Walmart will lay off hundreds of corporate workers, require others to relocate

Walmart will lay off hundreds of corporate staff and require the majority of employees working remotely or at a handful of off-site offices to relocate, the company announced Tuesday.

Walmart is the largest employer in the country, with 1.6 million workers. The majority of employees work in stores or warehouses. Chief people officer Donna Morris said in an email to staff that the number of associates being laid off is "small in percentage" relative to the size of the company.

The retail giant mandated that the majority of employees in Dallas, Atlanta and Toronto move to its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. Other staffers will go to locations in the San Francisco Bay Area or the New York metropolitan area. Employees affected by the news have already been notified, the company said.
