Making a large number of employees redundant at the same time is a difficult time for any organization, and even more so if they lack a very reliable and comprehensive workforce management system.
This unfortunate situation will affect Tesco, the largest supermarket chain in the country and also one of the UK’s largest employers, who has officially announced that it is cutting 4,500 jobs mostly across its 153 Metro stores, as it puts measures in place to “simplify and reduce processes and administrative tasks”.
Staff will be offered alternative roles within Tesco but after taking into account reallocations, 4,500 employees will lose their jobs. About 134 (out of 1,750) Tesco Express stores and larger sites would also be affected.
Jason Tarry, Tesco CEO, UK & ROI, said: “In a challenging, evolving retail environment, with increasing cost pressures, we have to continue to review the way we run our stores to ensure we reflect the way our customers are shopping and do so in the most efficient way.
“We do not take any decision which impacts colleagues lightly, but have to make sure we remain relevant for customers and operate a sustainable business now and in the future.”
