LGBTQ+ Network is one of the largest LGBTQ colleague networks in the UK with over 2000 members across the Tesco Group. We want to attract, support and develop our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex colleagues so that they feel confident to be themselves at work.
Women at Tesco Network
The Women in Tesco network champions gender diversity and promotes a culture of diverse and inclusive thinking, where women feel confident to share their views and articulate how they add value to the business.
The Armed Forces Network
We work hard to support colleagues and people in the Armed Forces community. We recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant which is a promise to the nation that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.
Our Disability Network empowers and inspires all colleagues with disabilities in their lives and provides colleagues with the platform and a voice to make real change and show that everyone is welcome at Tesco. We’re really proud to have recently been accredited as a ‘Disability Confident Employer’.
Black Asian Minority Ethnic Network (BAME)
BAME is a colleague network aiming to make a difference by raising awareness of diversity and inclusion within Tesco. We want to encourage and support BAME colleagues to develop their careers and let BAME people in the wider community know that Tesco is a great place to work.
At Tesco, inclusion means that Everyone’s Welcome. Everyone is treated fairly and with respect; by valuing individuality and uniqueness we create a sense of belonging.
Diversity and inclusion have always been at the heart of Tesco. It is embedded in our values: we treat people how they want to be treated. We always want our colleagues to feel they can be themselves at work and we are committed to helping them be at their best.
Across the Tesco group we are building an inclusive workplace, a place to actively celebrate the cultures, personalities and preferences of our colleagues – who in turn help to build the success of our business and reflect the diversity of the communities we serve.
The people we meet each day make our lives interesting, whether we’re at work or at home. We know how important it is to network, so that’s why colleagues in Tesco come together to create networks where people can chat and find out how others manage their careers, meet people in different areas of the business or even just share ideas. Some of our key networks are highlighted above and include LGBTQ+, BAME, Women at Tesco, Armed Forces at Tesco and Disability at Tesco.
We also have The Family Network which is a community of colleagues created to support each other before, during or on return from maternity, adoption or shared parental leave. It’s a friendly environment to share experiences and learning, offer advice, discuss any challenges and help each other take advantage of all the colleague benefits. It also helps colleagues stay connected during the time they’re away from the office, and helps them transition back to work.
Many older people wish to remain in work or semi-retire and our customers really value older people's experience. Recently we have formed The Retired Colleague Community brought together by Alumni and Retired Staff Associations (RSA) which enables colleagues to keep in touch with Tesco during their retirement.
