How Walmart should address this threat The corporation needs to check on different ways to maintain its clients' loyalty through ensuring it has a clean reputation. Therefore, different factors that may tarnish the corporation's image need to be addressed with immediate effect. Among the factors is the poor treatment of the employees. The company needs to evaluate the common mistakes that the top management practice in such a way that they end up being bad in the employees' context.

WALMART 8 welfare is considered at work. Research shows that happy and satisfied employees tend to be motivated to do their tasks in a better way. Once the employees get happy in their jobs, it is easy for the clients to notice the difference, especially for the reason that the services offered will be better. In return, they will acknowledge that the corporation's employees are treated well, which will create a more positive image for the company ( Fombrun, 2015). The company also tarnish its reputation as a result of anti-competitiveness. The anti- competitive mannerisms evident in the corporation include preventing the establishment of different products within the stores, among other factors. Walmart Corporation's top management need to comply with the laws of competition. The law is oriented towards addressing the dominant businesses and the agreements among corporations. Walmart and other single enterprises are given authority to increase the costs of commodities above their respective market prices without paying attention to whether there may be other entities joining the market. A dominant enterprise within the industry is also advantaged in that it could control its competitors without having to sign any consensual agreements with them. Walmart Corporation could utilize the opportunity and control competitiveness with other competitors within the industry, and hence, it will remain competitive ( Anholt, 2016). Another aspect that leads to the tarnished image of the company is gender imbalance. The corporation needs to take different measures to address this issue. For instance, the corporation may re-assess different job specifications, especially for the top management positions. In Walmart Corporation, female employees are mostly attached to the bottom post for the reason that females are perceived as weak and incompetent enough to handle top positions. For this reason, there is a need to modify the qualifications for the top positions to fit female employees.

This is through increasing transparency within the organization by explaining to the staff members the criteria used in determining their respective salary in such a way that female employees get fewer salaries than their male colleagues. Solving gender imbalances within the corporation will also play a significant role in building a positive reputation of the company in the eyes of the community.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
