(Reuters) -Walmart on Saturday said that it will streamline job titles across its corporate staff, to ensure that it remains competitive. "We're in the process of updating our approach to campus office jobs to ensure we remain competitive in today’s environment, better reflect the work being done today, while streamlining job titles across our campus office roles," a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement. Corporate employees at Walmart and Sam's Club, its warehouse chain, will be reclassified into fewer groups of possible titles and in some cases, pay changes will go into effect, starting in November.
