15,000 Festive Colleagues join Tesco to help customers this Christmas
30 November 2016
Tesco customers are set to be given an extra helping hand with their Christmas shopping this year by over 15,000 additional Festive Colleagues.
The majority will start in stores across the UK from the start of December, and will work across a range of departments to help customers with everything they need – from picking the perfect party dress to finding that all important jar of cranberry sauce.
Tony Hoggett, UK Chief Operating Officer at Tesco said:
“Our colleagues are already doing a wonderful job getting ready for the festive season and with our additional Festive Colleagues joining them in store, we’re ready to help our customers every step of the way this Christmas.”
Nearly 60,000 people were interviewed for Festive Colleague roles at Tesco this year.
Thousands of Tesco office colleagues will also work in Tesco stores over the festive period as part of the Feet on the Floor programme.
Feet on the Floor, which runs between Halloween and Christmas, is an opportunity for all Tesco colleagues to share experiences and work together at a crucial time of year, ensuring the best possible customer service. Tesco head office employees are set to work the equivalent of 10,000 days in stores over the next six weeks.
