Asda pays out £26.9m bonus pot to staff

Staff at Asda stores and depots across the UK will share a £26.9 million bonus pay out this week.

As Asda’s parent company Walmart prepares to announce its full year results today, the UK supermarket chain has confirmed that staff with over six months service at Asda will receive their portion of the annual bonus on Friday.

The payout will see full-time staff at any of Asda’s 386 stores and 19 distribution depots receiving a bonus of up to £350.

A ‘superbonus’ of up to £437 is available to over 20,000 staff who have exceeded their annual target.

Andy Clarke, chief executive officer and president of Asda, said: “There is no doubt in my mind that the staff working in our stores and depots are the heroes of our business. They have worked incredibly hard this year to deliver the best for our customers – taking everything from the difficult economic climate to the great British weather in their stride.

“Our bonus payout is directly linked to our stores’ performance, so to be able to offer a bonus to our colleagues during challenging times, is testament to the fact we are giving consumers what they want – quality, value and service every day.”
