FACE IN THE CROWD: CEO Doug McMillon greets crowd at stockholders meeting.
Here's the summary
of Walmart CEO Doug McMillon's
address to the company's stockholder meeting in Fayetteville today. A bow to digital commerce and pickup points versus conventional store shopping; a promise to "invest" in employees, including specifics such as flexible work schedules, and promise to lead in innovation stand out.
The crowd inside, including hand-picked employees from around the world, was enthusiastic as always. The pageantry included protesters outside, including a group from Mercy for Animals, which wants Walmart to stop buying pork from producers who confine pigs to gestation crates.
