Tesco thanks colleagues with a Christmas bonus

Tesco colleagues have worked tirelessly to keep food on shelves and to look after our customers in the most challenging circumstances. As we approach the busiest time of the year, and to recognise the incredible hard work of our colleagues, we have announced a 10% bonus for permanent colleagues across stores, distribution centres, customer fulfilment centres and our customer engagement centre.

For hourly-paid colleagues this will be a 10% bonus on actual hours worked and for our front-line managers, this will be a 10% bonus on salary for weeks worked. Store colleagues will receive the bonus for hours worked between 13 December 2020 and 9 January 2021. Temporary colleagues will also be eligible, if they joined on or before 1 September 2020. Colleagues working for Tesco’s businesses in Ireland and Central Europe will be similarly rewarded.

Jason Tarry, Tesco UK and ROI CEO, said:

“The hard work, dedication and resilience that colleagues have shown over the last few months has been remarkable. This year has proven challenging and uncertain for so many of us and this bonus is a way of saying thank you for the incredible response of our colleagues to these challenges. We’re also giving colleagues an extended 20% discount on their shopping in the run-up to Christmas, to help bring some extra festive cheer.”


This follows a 10% bonus recognising the efforts of colleagues in the early stages of the pandemic, for hours worked between 9 March and 30 May. See further details here:
