Asda store colleagues to share £27.8m bonus pot

Asda has confirmed that 103,000 hourly-paid store colleagues across the UK will share a £27.8m bonus pot in February’s pay packet.

While the amount each colleague receives depends on their individual circumstances, the average bonus for a store colleague working full time is £413, while the average figure for all hourly-paid store colleagues is £269.

Asda remains the only supermarket to offer hourly-paid store colleagues a bonus scheme once they have completed a three-month probationary period.

The bonus is part of a benefits package that includes 10% off shopping in store and online, a company pension scheme and discounts on a range of services and activities.

Hayley Tatum, Asda’s People Director, commented, “This payout is only possible thanks to the continued hard work and dedication of our store colleagues.

'They did a fantastic job serving millions of customers last year, often in challenging circumstances due to the pandemic, and their bonuses are well deserved.”
