We are rewarding our frontline colleagues for going above and beyond to support their communities with a pay bonus.
Colleagues in food stores, funeral homes and our distribution hubs will receive an extra week’s pay in June in recognition of their incredible efforts in the past few weeks as well as seeing their colleague discount doubled to 20% until the end of the same month.
Our colleagues in stores have been working hard to ensure they remain stocked with vital food and essentials and our distribution teams working around the clock to ensure deliveries reach stores across the country.
In funerals, our colleagues are going the extra mile to support families who have a lost a loved one at this uncertain time.
Debbie Robinson, our Chief Executive, said: “Our colleagues have been doing a tremendous job ensuring our communities continue to have access to vital essentials and services during this uncertain time.
“Our teams in food stores and distribution have worked around the clock to ensure that our stores stay open and communities can stay safe while getting the food they need.
“Our funeral colleagues have been there for the families of loved ones in our care.
“This is why, in the spirit of co-operation, we are rewarding colleagues on the frontline in our stores, distribution hubs and funeral homes with one week’s extra pay in June in recognition of their phenomenal support.
“This reward is just one of the ways we are saying thank you and showcasing the importance of our frontline workers in helping keep our communities safe and supported.”
