Asda staff share £49 million payout from sharesave scheme

Asda employees are set to share £49 million as a three-year Walmart sharesave scheme matures.

The payout is the biggest for the grocery retailer’s 14,700 employees, with those saving £50 a month receiving more than £3,300, over £1,400 more than their original investment of £1,920.

Sarah Dickins, people operations and policy director at Asda, said: “This is the third consecutive year that our colleagues have enjoyed a record sharesave payout.

“Our employees drive the long-term success of our business. With a 70% increase on the money they invested for this year’s payout, I am delighted that so many of our employees are reaping the rewards of their hard work.”
