This is copied from this week's Team 5

Colleague listening update

We shared with you earlier in the year that we’re moving away from the previous format of the What Matters To You? surveys. With strong results in January and over the last few years, we want to evolve how we listen to colleagues. This will allow us to be more timely and responsive to feedback and therefore to drive more focused action. For now we will not be asking you to complete a survey this summer.
How we listen to colleagues will look and feel different and will continue to feed into the Big 6. Colleagues from across the business are helping design and test a new approach, and we’ll share further details with you in the coming months.

In the meantime, please continue to use everyday opportunities to listen and share your feedback.
Many Thanks

They don't give us have a team 5 at Widnes DC. I don't think managers trust us.

It's probably more to do with the fact that there's nothing stopping an SM from just doing them all themselves. It was a flawed process where the majority of the time the SM forces you to give good answers or just do it themselves. It ultimately doesn't give Tesco an accurate representative view on what the lower rung thinks of the company.

What’s the point of any survey linked to big 6 we don’t get bonus any more.

What announcement. What about full time workers. Scare mongering won't help.

Not trying to scare anyone, was told everyone on a full time contract would be offered redundancy or a flexi contract. Anyone else?

Doubt full timers are going to be offered redundancy, makes no sense paying of thousands of people off when the numbers of full time staff is naturally falling anyway.

Don't see how they can make you redundant when the job role is still there!! Could give a buy out and make us part time?

Don't get me wrong, we've been treated like s*** by lewis, but this is capitalism, what's good for business isn't necessarily good for us.

The money generated from its downsizing and loss of liabilities will have contributed significantly to this, don't be disillusioned, Tesco is still losing market share to Aldi and Lidl, the sale of its assets and downsizing will be felt in the next year or so.

Won't happen as this would cost Tesco's Millions in payouts, as there still many thousands of us that are still full time.
The cheapest option would be to buy us out with a small payment & offer part time hours take it or goodbye all agreed by our wonderful Union.

Knowing most won't be able to live on reduced hours myself included that have homes to run and bills to pay will eventually leave costing Tesco's next to nothing, as they won't have to pay those former full time staff redundancy & the ones that leave will be replaced with flexi hour staff.

Outcome

Pat on the backs & high five's at Tesco's HQ as a job well done saving the company Millions in redundancy payments & increased Bonuses for Dave Lewis and his cronies.

If that happened Tesco would lose more than good people but many customers .Do you think the public would accept this.I don’t think so each household must choose who they shop with and each family are related so on and so on.

All the customers would see is more staff on the shopfloor as 1 ft contract has been split into 2/3/4/5 PT ones.

Why don't they just shut the whole company down and have done with it?  Zero wage bill then, target met.  Our whole store is so understaffed as it is, shelves are empty.  They should either run the place properly or not bother at all.
