Recognize and Avoid Conflicts of Interest

Outside Employment and Business Interests

I have a side busines that sells clothing, cosmetics, supplements, and other goods. May I encourage my co-workers to make purchases from my side business?

No. Do not use your Walmart role to promote your side business. Your side business cannot interfere with your work at Walmart or use Walmart resources, including your associate discount card. It cannot supply products to Walmart, supply products to any current or potential Walmart supplier with whom you have a business relationship or influence, compete with Walmart, or reflect negatively on Walmart.

Can I operate a side business?

Do I need prior approval to participate on a for-profit, national non-profit, or supplier advisory board?

Yes. Associates seeking to serve on for-profit boards, national non-profit boards, or supplier advisory boards must contact the Office of the Corporate Secretary for guidance and to begin the required approval process, including antitrust review, as appropriate.
