There is comfortable growth on both the top and bottom lines, which is extremely respectable given tough prior year comparatives.

Walmart posted close to 40,000 vacancies in March and 30,000 in April, which has gone below 10,000 in June 2022. Walmart Company Filings has most of the mentions related to the ESG and COVID-19 themes in 2021.
