Appreciation for colleagues’ dedication and commitment
As is the case throughout the retail sector, both retail and distribution teams in Líder Aliment have been working exceptionally hard to ensure continual replenishment of the retail stores. With shoppers purchasing higher volumes than usual, this has been challenging. In recognition of their dedication, commitment and professionalism, both towards each other and towards customers, the company announced a one-off bonus equivalent to 200 euro for a full-time colleague and pro-rata for others to be paid at the end of March.
As retail stores are essential for their local communities, the aim of protecting the colleagues and their customers led to a wide range of protective measures being adopted by the company. Opening hours have been changed, ensuring time is available for the very rigorous cleaning procedures which have been implemented. Clear signage throughout the store reminds shoppers of the social distance required by local authorities when near service counters, at the check-out or walking through the store. Other tips given to customers through varied communication channels include shopping alone, ensuring the time spent instore is short by being prepared and washing hands once back home..
Donation of food to families in need
Lider Aliment has confirmed it will support families dependent on Badajoz food banks by donating products for the preparation of sandwiches which can be delivered daily to families in need. The company’s aim is to ensure the supply of, mainly, fresh products like cheeses, ham, cold cuts, and sausages to these families. The majority of public and private companies responsible for providing this aid have been forced to deliver bags of sandwiches, fruit or dairy products to the families in need on a weekly basis due to insufficient funding.
