This company has been working with CONFyE since 2009 with a strong commitment by its top management team and its CEO, becoming a private sector benchmark for best practices in family-work balance and promoting family-responsible workplace environments. As a testament to this sustained commitment, Walmart has been one of the first three companies in Argentina to secure the IFREI Accreditation in 2011. Walmart's commitment to family-work balance is also proven by the company's efforts to disseminate and promote an organizational culture based on the individual respect and the commitment to employee´s family as a new stakeholder for organization.
Nowadays, companies need to disseminate and research practices that turn workplaces into family-responsible environments. Indeed, Walmart is committed to corporate family responsibility to think about the future together as part of its strategic vision.
“The academic work undertaken by CONFyE is excellent, and the goals pursued deserve wide recognition. Researching and disseminating practices that can help turn companies into family-responsible environments proves necessary at present for all businesses, even if some firms haven't realized it yet. Walmart has benefited greatly from its commitment to family corporate responsibility and these joint-efforts to look at the future as part of our strategic vision. As a result, we are driven to support this initiative for many different reasons. We value and celebrate the opportunity provided by IAE Business School's CONFyE Center to support and enhance its growth, sharing our experiences and learning from the best practices developed by other companies. Joining this initiative increases our commitment. This is a unique opportunity to make a difference in people's and families' lives. We are very proud to do it.".”Horario BarbeitoPresident and CEO, Walmart Chile About Walmart ArgentinaWalmart Argentina is an affiliate of Walmart Stores, Inc. and it started operating in Argentina in 1995.
