Compliance Manager Cull
« on: 04-07-17, 01:15PM »
My partner is a compliance manager they want to know if there is a rough idea of when their job will go and what redundancy packages are being offered. After their 1% pay rise when there is still potential for them to earn £2000 in their band, they are ready to take the jump in this careless company.

Our compliance manager does alot. Our pm however does very little. Do we need a pm. Yes but only for extreme personel issues and 1 between 4 stores would be fine for this. Seems strange how much tesco cares about pricing errors and audits yet wants to rid stores of compliance. It will go wrong mark my words.

From what I've heard, stores that have lost the compliance and PM roles are not missing the PM's but are missing the compliance managers!
Now I've not got any stores local to me to varify that, it's just what I've heard from old work colleagues in those pilot areas!

Now if they are going to go ahead and get rid of both roles this year, my guess would be by week 39 when the colleague canteens go!

Compliance would not be my first choice of managers to cull. Customer Experience  :question: ;D  :)  ;)

They could reduce the PMs to 1/2 per group.

I find compliance managers pick up a lot of slack from the lazy PMs and do a lot for their store managers, it wouldn't be my first choice of manager to go but as it is, it looks like it will. I do however think in a couple of years time most managers will be made on to shift leaders and the few that will be left will manage a whole store not just a dept.

I agree with shop worker......the future is shift leaders.
Would be good to hear what's going on in the pilot stores as there are so many rumours  as to how it's going. Personally I hope it goes ahead and can get out.

From experience the managers rely on the compliance manager, ours has moved early he has moved to fresh foods as it was a vacancy he didn't want redundancy so took it as a safety net, looking across our group half have voluntary moved already, leaving stock to pick up compliance.

to be honest it's a mess, we can assume under the pilot the job has been streamlined? But trying to
run it in its original form is pretty horrendous. Can see the stock manager going off with stress, we have been told that if compliance managers move on they won't be replaced, we have one manager itching for redundancy but they won't move him to the compliance job.

Trolleyboy96 was the Conpliance Manager offered redundancy? I am a CM and I would take it if it was offered

Our group isn't on the pilot, a lot are jumping now as it looks pretty likely it's happening, our fresh manager left, leaving a vacancy so our compliance manager took the job rather than risk it later this year.

Lewis will replicate what he has done in Distribution and reduced store management by 60% and replace them with (coordinators) shift leader - sadly there is will be a queue of sadly deluded souls willing sell themselves for a few extra pennies in the belief that have a future career with Tesco

plenty of bad feeling. Stock Control have picked up PI and there are a few issues...as for PM we now have an admin colleague doing day to day stuff with a group PM who comes in every now and then.

Both PM and CM were offered and took redundancy.

I am also a CM and am really want to know what is going on with my job. I've been told September or February but these are just rumours. I need to plan my work for the next few months around childcare as I would take the redundancy if it's available. It's making me quite stressed knowing what is best to do.

You'd hardly notice that our PM has gone, except for the fact that uniform authorizations now happen in a reasonable timeframe and there's one less person lurking in the canteen. The CM is a different matter - already I can see a much more lacklustre approach to issues of compliance. Interestingly our former CM has moved to another role and is already looking a lot healthier and happier than in recent times.

I'm like you Aussielady. Just want some kind of communication, it's quite demoralising in store we have nothing coming down to us as it's all being directed to the dept/store mgrs so trying to motivate myself each day, annoyed that we have no information, timescales, no one to talk to about all this uncertainty, I really feel for all the other teams that are going through job changes/consultations/redundancies/tupe however unsettling it must be at least they have a timescale and can talk about what's going on and share their feelings. Maybe Dave could put out a communication offering voluntary redundancy and see how many CM & PM take up the offer,  could reduce his timescales down and save £££

Please do not expect anything short of nothing from your senior team and above, and then you won't be disappointed.

I have been through this very situation and to say that unappreciated, undervalued and utterly let down by all those I'd supported over too many years to mention would be an understatement.

I counted myself lucky if my manager and the senior team acknowledged my presence, I certainly felt excluded .

Please also don't think that any points system will be fair and unbiased process, because it won't be, the scores will be manipulated to keep who they want, mainly based in
who you are sleeping with, who you are related to, or who you drink / play golf with

My store is also one of the trial stores.  The compliance manager going has made a huge difference. but haven't really noticed a difference without the pm.  There is also an admin colleague and stock control took over a lot of the compliance duties.  It's a bit of a mess really to be honest with the other managers not picking up the slack and just sitting in the canteen (as seems to be the norm) doing nothing.  Staff morale is very low understandably and people are jumping ship before it's their turn to be shown the door.

Let's face it Lewis has pledged to reduce costs by £3 billion and the only way to do this is to reduce payroll costs.

This will achieved by a reduction in management numbers - all those that survive will be expected to cover the duty role., the move to flexi contracts,reduced premiums and the removal of full time contracts

It's one thing being responsible for signing contractors in & out, but you can't be expected to be responsible for their work/safety.  In our store it's still down to the duty manager to sign in and out etc.

You will all (or those that remain will be) duty mAnagers soon, and signing the permit to irk is simply ensuring that the contractors have the correct paperwork etc

The situation is disgusting, and Tesco , and the senior teams don't give a t**s about people living in fear and uncertainty, MtT has said (in every announcement of job cuts) that everything will be done to help the effected colleagues... and all I can say this is lie after lie after lie... I was promised the earth during my 1-2-1 meeting... I'll help with your CV ... I'll help with interviews .... I'll speak to .... there's a job for missing everyone in Tesco .... you're a valued member of my team .... we value you contribution to ... etc etc etc all empty words and no action .... didn't even a sorry you're leaving card from my manager/ peers and certainly didn't get one from Tesco (as a company) which after over 30 years of service is somewhat upsetting and hard to take

This position you have been given, I'm assuming it's temp?? So did you step into the role as a newbie, or transfer from another dept?? If so, was your other contract permanent and you are now temp flexi ???
