Colleague Health, Wellbeing and Safety

At Tesco, health and safety is central to how we do business and we are committed to our vision that no one should ever be hurt while working or shopping at Tesco.

Beyond safety, we are committed to helping our colleagues be at their best, both physically and mentally. We recognise the role we have in supporting our colleagues’ health and wellbeing and are committed to making Tesco a healthier place to work.

Our colleagues are the heart of the Tesco business. We believe that when they are at their best, that they will be at their best for our customers too. Therefore, helping our colleagues to live a healthier, sustainable lifestyle is an important driver and a key element of our business strategy.

Some elements of our Colleague Wellbeing programme include:

  • Gympass: offering colleagues and their families discounted access to a network of gyms, studios and activities
  • Our Employee Assistance Programme
  • Discounted benefits on glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses with business partner Vision Express
  • Seasonal flu vaccines
  • Free access to the Headspace app for all colleagues since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic

This programme is helping colleagues and their families understand what it takes to stay healthy, building a healthier and more engaged workplace.

Building on its achievements so far, we are continually working to enhance the programme, drawing on feedback from colleagues, with the aim of creating and maintaining a culture of well-being among our colleagues; one of the largest employee bases nationwide.
