Walmart issues back to office mandate amid ‘hundreds’ of job cuts

THE WHAT? Walmart has announced significant cuts to its corporate workforce as well as a sweeping ‘back to the office’ mandate for remote workers. The US’ largest private employer is also asking workers in smaller offices to relocate to central hubs.
