Coronavirus: Tesco thanks its staff during unprecedented times with 10% bonus backdating to March 9
A supermarket has pledged a 10% bonus for its employees after shop staff face unprecedented demand.
Tesco, which has an Express in Newark and superstore in Ollerton, will be giving the boost on the hourly rate for time worked across its stores, distribution and customer service centres.
Bonuses will be backdated to March 9 for all permanent employees to assist them as much as possible.
The increased hourly pay rate will endure until May 1, which is when the company will review its situation.
Jason Tarry, Tesco's UK and Republic of Ireland chief executive, said: "It's been an extraordinary couple of weeks and despite the enormous challenges, it's been incredible to see how colleagues have stepped up and responded, doing an outstanding job during the uncertain and difficult time.
"This pay bonus is just one way we are saying thank you to our colleagues and recognising that they are on the frontline, helping to feed the nation."
