Celebrating our global SPAR team members

February 22, 2022 IN THE CATEGORY: People

At SPAR, our people are a significant success factor of our business. In a highly competitive environment, it is our talented and dedicated people who make a difference in their communities. The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) has proclaimed February 22 Supermarket Employee Day – a time to recognise food industry employees at every level for the work they do feeding families and enriching lives. 

Supermarket Employee Day provides an excellent opportunity to recognise our team members across the full supply chain, who come to work daily to keep shelves stocked and provide communities with essential services that help them survive and thrive.

SPAR International has picked up the Employee Day and extended the media coverage over three days to highlight all retail business areas. Throughout the week, we will be sharing stories about SPAR team members from across the globe, from retailing to wholesaling, from stores and warehouses to offices. Keep an eye out for these fantastic SPAR profiles on our Facebook page.

Pivotal role

Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges and uncertainty across the globe. It has, however, also highlighted the resilience and real sense of solidarity and collaboration that lie at the heart of the global SPAR network. 

We thank all of our SPAR team members, across all aspects of the organisation worldwide, for their exemplary dedication to serving our customers and playing a pivotal role in their communities through testing and uncharted circumstances.
