Ol' tesco not having a good week on social media.

Though it's a reach to say tesco liked it, more that some poor sod from the social media team wasn't paying attention. 

But alas anything to cause a bit of ragebait

*edit* The comments are worth a read for a laugh, bunch of simpletons, no shock it's from the express.

Did mine a few weeks ago. I can honestly say I've never laughed more during my time at Tesco. :D ;D

While I know this topic is from last year I thought it apt to make a comment today as I left Tesco last Autumn but did complete this training prior to leaving, anyway the company I now work for sent us all a link to complete diversity training the other day, basically it was very similar to the Tesco version, the only big change was it said that however one identifies in times of sexuality and gender, we should keep in mind people change over time and should consider ourselves to be "fluid". It then rounded things off by saying anyone who struggled with the idea could be retrained if they so wish.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

Well that is simply not true.  Many (most?) people are very certain of what they are and do not change so are definitely not "fluid".  Not that it should matter as long as everyone including those who are "fluid" are not treated any differently in the workplace or indeed anywhere other than in close personal relationships.

I found this to be an interesting article.  Tesco apparently liked a tweet that said "I do not understand how people can actually claim to be 'proud' to be from Britain. What is their to be proud of?"


I would be wary of accepting on face value what Tesco 'Apparently' did or did not do. Its very easy to misrepresent people on the internet.

Completly agree, I just found it very strange that it popped up at the end of the training, cant help but wonder if it was some badly worded attempt to say to people who feel unable to come out right now, or maybe have not come out in the workplace yet that there is nothing stopping you doing so in the future.

I would like to know when are people going to put their training in place as it’s not practised in the store I resigned from.  I’ve resigned because of victimisation.

Getting the training, and having it implemented in-store are two completely unassociated things.
The training is done so as to protect the company, not to help the aggrieved. It is done, and said to have been done, end of.
The implementation actually needs some thought, empathy and intelligence, so breaths must not be held.
Sorry for your troubles miriam, hope you have gone on to bigger and better things.

Lackofinterest, I will never give Tesco any of my hard earned money again, other companies will be getting my hard earned money.  I’ve been badly effected I can’t face going in.
