3 February 2021
Tesco Ireland is delighted to announce it has been officially certified a Great Place to Work for the fourth consecutive year. The accolade was assessed and granted through Great Place to Work’s Trust Index© employee survey, followed by a thorough Culture Audit© demonstrating policies and practices.
A leader in food retail, Tesco is one of the largest private-sector employers in Ireland, employing over 13,000 colleagues across the country in its network of 151 stores, head office and distribution centres. Tesco offers colleagues the highest average rate of pay in the food retail sector and market-leading benefits.
This year, Tesco was commended by GPTW for its Covid-19 response in prioritising the safety of colleagues and customers alike. Throughout the pandemic, Tesco continued to support colleagues with additional bonuses, enhanced colleague discounts, life assurance and earlier access to staff rewards for new colleagues.
Kari Daniels, CEO, Tesco Ireland said: “We’re very proud to have retained the Great Place to Work standard for the fourth consecutive year. Our teams, like many others, have been tested like never before in the past year as the way we work has changed significantly. Our colleagues have completely risen to the challenge and worked hard to help and safely serve our shoppers a little better every day. This accreditation is a tribute to all our colleagues. We couldn’t be prouder.”
Tesco Ireland offers a rewarding career in retail, from its leading benefits and rewards programme to an open and welcoming inclusive culture, and opportunities for a variety of career roles whether across its stores, office or distribution. For further information visit www.tesco.ie/careers
