Tesco to create 20,000 jobs in the UK
5 March 2012
Tesco will hire 20,000 full and part-time employees across the UK in the next two years, including some apprentices. The supermarket giant has also said that it plans to focus on giving opportunities to young unemployed people. Currently a quarter of Tesco’s 290,000 staff are under the age of 25.
Prime Minister David Cameron welcomes the recruitment drive: “This is a massive confidence boost for the UK economy. Tesco is one of the world's leading companies and the biggest private sector employer in this country. Their commitment to creating jobs and opportunities for young people at what is a difficult time for the economy is fantastic news for the UK as a whole and for those people they will help into work.”
Richard Brasher, chief executive at Tesco, says: “In unprecedented economic conditions like these, major businesses have a big responsibility to step forward, invest and create jobs. Today's announcement is a huge shot in the arm for the UK economy. At the core of this investment is our determination to deliver the best shopping experience for our customers, bar none.”
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
