As the largest company in the world, with $524 billion in revenues and 2.3 million employees, when Walmart decides to do something, whether greening its supply chain or introducing COVID-safe protocols in stores, the impact is enormous—as is its influence on the world of business. That’s why the big box retailer so often lands on this list. And sure enough, when Walmart announced its debt-free education initiative this summer—offering free college tuition and books to 1.5 million associates (since 2018, it had offered them for $1/day )—Target, and then Amazon, with 1 million eligible employees between them, soon followed. This summer Walmart also rolled out a Race & Inclusion curriculum to its hundreds of thousands of U.S. employees, one of several recent investments the company has made in a commitment to strengthen racial equity in its stores, supplier networks, and communities—which is to say just about everywhere in America.
