Walmart's Associate Delivery Program Has Employees Transport Goods

Walmart's Associate Delivery program lets store employees deliver parcels to customers on their way home from work.

The program is currently in the testing stage but it works by compensating employees for dropping off parcels on their commute home. This idea taps into the latent desire of its employees to have the opportunity to make a little bit of extra cash. Walmart is well aware that many of its employees take second jobs or passion projects to make some extra money, and so it makes sense to have their employees provide a service they require and that mutually benefits both parties.

Walmart's Associate Employee Delivery program has been launched in an effort to keep up with online retailer Amazon and its new delivery initiatives, such as systems that involve drones and cargo jets. Walmart has found a cheaper, more efficient way of fulfilling its needs and the needs of its employees.
