Our HR Comment: – Aldi to hire over 1,700 workers in UK expansion.
Matthew P Chilcott, FCIPD, ACEL, Owner of Consensus HR comments: – “This is great news to hear from The Times considering the current news in relation to Wilko’s and hopefully should the worse scenario happen, many of the team will be able to get a retail role with Aldi, another great retailer. Employers should ensure at all times that the team are continually informed of any updates in relation to their employment, so as to support them at this very difficult time.
