Shareholders 2015

Over 160 Asda colleagues will be travelling to America on Sunday 31st May to meet over 15,000 other Walmart colleagues and spend a week learning about our wider family through a combination of presentations, an audience with the Exec, store visits and a trip to Walmart’s Home Office at the heart of Bentonville.

We caught up with some of the lucky colleagues attending to see how they’re feeling about the once in a lifetime trip. We’ll be following them throughout week so keep checking the Green Room to see what they’ve been up to!
