Title: The health patrol has arrived
Post by: penguin on 03-01-17, 08:50PM
Announced in our store today is that everyones manager will over the next couple of weeks be sitting down with us to confirm our "healthy lifestyle pledge" for 2017, these are then going to be written down and placed in the back area for all to see, apparently managers will keep an eye on our progress and offer "coaching" to anyone who is not keeping to there pledge. Well I can see this one being fun and games as I for one am taking no part in the stupidity (I agree improving our health is something we should all consider) but having it dictated by a Tesco manager no thank you we are adults and can make these choices for ourselves.

That is not all we are being made to do online training around how to improve our mood and mental health, improve our mood is this company trying to wind staff up just look at all the speculation across so many areas of the business and there sitting people down in front of a computer to learn how to be in a better mood.

The final bit and I've saved the best until last, free fruit for all staff to eat every day this month and managers to hand it out to us, and talk to us about the benefits of eating it.

There is also an online health review by a health company we can have this one is "optional" but you do get a free plastic water bottle if you agree to it. Well trust me Tesco the entire thing is optional as far as I am concerned and like I say I think improving our health is a good thing of course it is but being treated like three year olds and given an apple a day well there is nothing suitable I could say on here without it being considered bad language.

"To improve my health I'm going to take up threesomes, I believe the added input will help me burn off the extra inches. Oh and it will make me happy and smily."
What a load of tosh its c**p like this that is costing millions and adding nothing. Why can't we just say we come to work to pay the bills, I will do the job as my contract states, I will not ride a bicycle to work, I will not enjoy ever mouthful and I don't care where a lettuce comes from!
But we can't. Why don't Tesco take a look at themselves be revolutionary and go back to when we made money and had  colleagues to work with..New year rant over Happy 2017 fellow drones.

Well here's my lifestyle promise to Tosco
I will eat what i want - when i want ,
I will drink just as much as i have always done - if not more when i want ,
If i want to smoke i will do so ,
my mood is only happy once i have done these habits . :) :D ;D.
As for the free fruit would i be entitled to that whilst i am a customer shopping ( having the " Free " fruit what the company recommends i have ? ) or would that be grazing - shop lifting ?   ??? 8-)
( Personally i like my fruit out of a tin with ice cream served with it - now that being served by a manager might just improve my mood ). ;D ;D

We have free fruit at our store, the managers keep saying "make sure you grab some fruit xxxxxxxx!"

Haven't heard anything about these health lifestyle pledges tho.

Nurse: "Doctor, doctor, the patient is slipping away!"
Doctor: "Give him an apple and tell him to get better"

They are oblivious to the extent Tesco CAUSES ill-health, especially stress - and of course, stress can lead to smoking, drinking and comfort eating.  Instead of lecturing us and free fruit they should replace moron managers with ones who actually care about their staff, redesign their policies and procedures (including flexi-contracts that cause financial worries) and BE open and honest with colleagues (instead of pretending) about company restructuring and job security.

Tell me this who said a manager is qualified to speak to us mere mortals about healthy eating. I don't want to be too harsh but half you seen half of these managers. This will be coming from the very people who can't even draw up a rota correctly. They can go and throw s**te at the moon  :D

2 observations

Firstly my manager is overweight and out of condition through sitting down in the office too much, looking forward to a lecture on lifestyle and fitness from her.

Secondly I will just smile sweetly, make up a stupid pledge and get my free fruit every day.

If that's what the "brains" at the top want that is exactly what they will get.

And so the game goes on

FFS!
I cannot believe they are actually going to roll this out after last years trial fiasco with this!
Yes that's right they actually had a dry run last year when the SM/PM did the same thing to the management team in my store!
We had an overweight SM/PM lecturing a cross country runner and bodybuilder on healthy eating in one of our JTP meetings last January!
I'll be honest I've no idea if there was meant to be pledges or follow up meetings/guidance as after 5 mins all the managers were laughing there heads off while those 2 overweight idiots were trying to have a serious discussion about it!
After 10 minutes of laughing and the PM getting extremely angry as no-one was taking her seriously we got up and walked out!
Clearly she fed it back that it was a success!!!!!!

So we are all meant to listen to our overweight LMs who have poor sick records, who rarely does a hands turn and smokes and drinks more than any of us.  The company should sort out staff levels and stock control issues in media. Can you pledge Redundancy at a small fee as the atmosphere is unhealthy. Some managers seem to think the only way to get you to do something is by shouting and swearing. This initiative was meant to be to improve staff sickness levels. All they need to do is tell people they can take Redundancy and if jobs will be safe. DL is using fear and uncertainty to add to his 39000 target.

Ah yes the  famous "trial" again, if something gets "trailed" you can bet your bottom dollar it will get rolled out in the future.

Examples being, team leaders going, nights in small to medium sized Tesco's going, canteen serving hot food, no more full time staff, all flexi hours. All these have been "trialed" with the bleeding obvious outcome every time.

If tesco wants it staff to eat healthy get rid of the sweets and sugary drinks vending machine every canteen has.....go back to chefs cooking lunches from scratch rather than zapping a frozen ready meals......and sort out shifts times so no one ever has to go from late to early.

You can only take so much of the Ts own brand.

As with anything in the big T land, by the time is gets down to the staff at the bottom is has somehow been blurred from something that may have sounded good in H/O while they are all sat at their desks on their Ivory chairs eating Waitroses meal deals.

The problem is that it will be communicated as "YOU HAVE TO PLEDGE" disguised as the "reasonable request" old nutshell, instead of actually giving the staff the respect to politely refuse if they do not want to take part for whatever reason.

Then they can all pat themselves on their communial heads with a "didn't we do well" forcing all these staff against their will (but are to worried about being disciplined to say no) to pledge on something none of us are qualified to either ask or rate.

If asked, a polite No Thank You will suffice.

According to this post from another site time between finishing one shift and starting another should be 11 hours
I had a look on the directgov website and it states...

Daily rest - a break between working days

If you are an adult worker you have the right to a break of at least 11 hours between working days. This means as an adult worker, if you finish work at 8.00 pm on Monday you should not start work until 7.00 am on Tuesday.

There is a help yourself fruit basket at the front of the store, for kids to take , wander round the store and dump on any available space. Never seen any managers telling kids to dispose of the waste properly in a bin. I wouldn't accept anything these hands in pockets people have to give away

Perhaps everyone should pledge to insist on always taking their full entitlement of breaks both during shifts and between shifts as a poor sleep pattern and tiredness is a major cause of ill-health.  Job done.

3 January 2017
Dear colleagues,
Happy New Year everyone! I’m incredibly excited to launch our first ever colleague health month.
 
People tend to think looking after themselves means making a big effort, but having listened to colleagues and customers, we believe it’s all about little steps to living healthier. You can take little steps as part of your daily routine, and build upon them over time. Our colleague health month is all about the little steps that Tesco can help you with.
 
I’ve recorded this short video message to share more about the free support we’re offering colleagues across three key focus areas this month:
 
Nutrition – all colleagues can enjoy fruit every day at work during January.
Healthy Body – every colleague can have a mini health screening, with our partner Nuffield either face to face or online. It’s a great way to help decide where to focus your efforts in 2017. And there’s a water bottle, to help you stay hydrated.
Healthy Mind – we’ve created new eLearning on mental health awareness, to help understand our mood and the important role sleep and food play in our wellbeing.
As part of this, we’re also inviting all colleagues to make a pledge to living healthier this year – a little step you want to take towards a health goal. Tesco will match your pledge by donating £1 to our National Charity Partners the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK, or the mental health charity MIND. Look out for lots of great discounts and recipes too in your bumper January pay day booklet.
 
This month is just the start. Over time, we want to make Tesco the healthiest place to work and shop, so I look forward to reading your stories and thoughts on how we can do this on Yammer and OurTesco, before we talk to our customers later this year.
 
Have a great January.
 
Natasha Adams
People Director, UK & Ireland

If tesco are really going to be donating £££'s in return for pledges, I guess I could make myself write one.
I still think it's a silly idea, tho.

And if he wants to try to tellme why fruit is good for me, I'll use the knowledge of human biology I picked up when doing my degree to tell him why all the pies he scoffs aren't good for him.

Improve your health and get more sleep, Tesco tells dubious staff as it gives them free fruit and vegs


Tesco is asking staff to ‘pledge’ to improve everything from diet to fitness and getting more sleep as part of a programme which it insists is entirely voluntary. The retailer is handing out free fruit and vegetables to staff at its 2,600 stores, offering free health checks and even providing advice on mental health as part of ‘Colleague Health Month’.

....On an unofficial online forum for Tesco staff, Very Little Helps – which is a dig at the company’s slogan, Every Little Helps – one post said the scheme was ‘bull***t’.

One employee suggested the scheme was intended to reduce sick days while others said there were better ways of reducing stress and illness, such as the retailer providing more secure terms of employment for those on flexible contracts.

Some store managers have taken a more proactive approach. During a trial of the scheme last year one member of staff described ‘an overweight’ store manager ‘lecturing a cross country runner and a weightlifter on healthy eating’.

However, that may be a far healthier approach to the workplace model than to sit on a till for hours or move around a cage like a sloth. No canteens there or chips I guess?

Improve your health and get more sleep, Tesco tells dubious staff as it gives them free fruit and vegs


Tesco is asking staff to ‘pledge’ to improve everything from diet to fitness and getting more sleep as part of a programme which it insists is entirely voluntary. The retailer is handing out free fruit and vegetables to staff at its 2,600 stores, offering free health checks and even providing advice on mental health as part of ‘Colleague Health Month’.

....On an unofficial online forum for Tesco staff, Very Little Helps – which is a dig at the company’s slogan, Every Little Helps – one post said the scheme was ‘bull***t’.

One employee suggested the scheme was intended to reduce sick days while others said there were better ways of reducing stress and illness, such as the retailer providing more secure terms of employment for those on flexible contracts.

Some store managers have taken a more proactive approach. During a trial of the scheme last year one member of staff described ‘an overweight’ store manager ‘lecturing a cross country runner and a weightlifter on healthy eating’.

:thumbup: I believe to be important to try to pass the most possible information about what it is the reality in Tesco and for that to incentive the press to read in VeryLittleHelps and to transmit to outside ours frustrations and fears that we are living every day in this demagogic company. Just an opinion. 8)


Couldn't agree with you more, but this is how big companies fail, they look nice and pretty on the outside, but rotten to the core on the inside ( excuse my fruitful puns).

I only wish Panorama  had done a "Problems at Tesco Pt. 2"
