Tesco had a lot to say in its latest trading statement.
CEO Ken Murphy was at pains to stress the group’s efforts on behalf of vulnerable customers and the way it’s been “supporting” them, in his opening quotes. There was also a line about the group’s commitment to “doing the right thing for all our stakeholders” including a 10 per cent Christmas bonus for staff.
While it’s not unusual for supermarkets to highlight issues like these for PR purposes when updating the stock market, Murphy and his team had a particularly good reason for driving home the point this time.
