Morrisons introduces staff discount to tackle turnover

MorrissonsMorrisons plans to introduce a 10% staff discount as part of its bid to reduce high turnover.

The move is part of the supermarket chain’s planned £450m investment to modernise its stores and will be available to all 118,000 employees across the business.

Marc Bolland, the company’s new chief executive, said: “In particular, I want to reduce staff turnover in stores, which is ahead of the industry norms, and to improve the training, development and performance evaluation of staff in the centre.

“I am pleased that we will be launching a colleague discount scheme later in the year – the weekly food shop is a key household expense, and we will be offering our colleagues even better value, through a discount on most items, for the first time.”
