Morrisons Plans To Increase Staff In Its Supermarkets

April 16, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
The fourth largest supermarket chain in the U.K. plans to trim its head office staff while hiring more service people for its stores. Morrisons is recruiting 5,000 shop floor staff to improve service, increase product availability, and open more checkout counters. Many of the new jobs will be part-time. In the meantime it plans to reduce head office jobs by 720. Headquarters staff in Bradford have increased by 50 percent since 2008, a trend that has left many employees disgruntled. The lack of personnel in stores has been a major complaint among the rank-and-file at Morrisons.
