Tesco gives staff Christmas perks worth £55 million

Tesco is giving its 280,000 UK staff Christmas benefits worth £55 million as a thank you.

Each employee will receive up to £20 in vouchers as well as a booklet containing exclusive money-off vouchers worth a further £120.

The retailer is also giving an additional day’s holiday to all employees which represents a total investment of almost £15 million.

Tesco is also continuing with its ‘family and friends’ scheme launched last Christmas in which friends or relatives of existing staff members will be given the opportunity to apply for a temporary job over the seasonal period.

Lucy Neville-Rolfe, executive director at Tesco, said: “Christmas is the busiest and most challenging time of the year for Tesco.

“Our staff are working harder than ever and are key to providing customers with a great Christmas. This is our thank you for all their loyalty and hard work.”
