Tesco Ireland thanks colleagues with pay bonus for going above and beyond

Over the last two weeks Tesco colleagues across Ireland have worked round the clock to help customers get the products that they need. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented increase in demand for food and household products in stores and online across Ireland.

In recognition of their incredible effort, and recognising the challenges that lie ahead, Tesco Ireland has today announced that it will be giving a 10% bonus on the hourly rate to colleagues in work across its stores and distribution. Backdated to Monday 9 March, colleagues who are currently in work will receive an adjustment in their pay to reflect this until 1 May, when we will review the situation.

Kari Daniels, CEO, Tesco Ireland said: “It’s been an unprecedented couple of weeks and despite the enormous challenges, it’s been incredible to see how colleagues have stepped up and responded, doing an outstanding job. This pay bonus is just one way we are saying thank you to our colleagues and recognising that they are on the front-line, helping to serve Ireland’s shoppers during these uncertain and difficult times.”
