A proud moment for us, as a connecting portal for women looking at restarting their careers with companies who are directing their energies towards diversity and inclusiveness.
Tesco as a company believes in creating an environment of success that is welcoming and where colleagues can be their best selves at work and beyond. They focus on colleague engagement and is a key factor in delivering customer experience.
A mentor-mentee relationship is perhaps the most influential in shaping a fruitful career which this event proved. Mentees were not only excited about meeting top players in the industry but were equally keen on putting their suggestions and ideas to practice!
When a company strongly encourages colleague participation, involvement and empowerment it becomes a preferred place of work for employees.
Colleague engagement at Tesco Bengaluru involves a holistic approach that fosters pride among colleagues to create a feeling of inclusiveness among them. Tesco Bengaluru is among the 2017 AVTAR and Working Mother 100 Best Companies to Work For in India list, a testament to their progressive practices and policies. With an in-house child care Center, a library, gymnasium, sports pitch and amphitheater to boast among other facilities, the organization invests in making an environment that is conducive for colleagues to succeed in doing their best for customers.
Tesco Bengaluru believes in encouraging colleagues to be their best at work and beyond. “When colleagues fulfill their potential and tap their talent and capabilities, we become better as a team,” reads a recent post on their Facebook page.
“I enjoy working at Tesco, I wake up every morning and feel the joy of coming to work every day. I feel proud of this amazing company that Jack Cohen built and the legacy he has left behind. I’m proud to work in a company that has stood the test of time for over a century and is built on strong values with the customer in the center of its core purpose. I love the people in Tesco and I find in them a drive to excel and perform. We have a strong leadership team and the values are driven top-down”, said a colleague of his experience of working with the company.
This is true now more than ever.
Employees are the greatest asset a company has. Tesco makes sure that every colleague is given ample opportunity to make a difference.
