May 21, 2019 / Valerie Bolden-Barrett

Unveiling plans for a new home office, Walmart said it expects the new campus will accelerate its digital transformation and help attract the next generation of talent. The campus, which will remain in Bentonville, Arkansas, will feature natural light, expanded food offerings, convenient parking, fitness options and a child care facility, Walmart said. It also will boast some sustainable design features like solar panels, energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems and regionally sourced building materials. The new facility is about more than aesthetics, Dan Bartlett, executive vice president, corporate affairs, said in a statement: "It’s about designing a place where associates are inspired to do their best work, together. It’s about delivering creative, innovative and inspired solutions for our customers, every day." Walmart said it expects the new construction to be completed in phases between 2020 and 2024.
