Aldi will pay store and distribution employees a 10% bonus due to their hard work throughout the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
The bonus will be effective for the hours that employees work from 9 March 2020 to the end of April 2020, and will then be reviewed on a monthly basis.
To further aid its efforts, Aldi is hiring an additional 9,000 employees to support the store and logistics teams.

Giles Hurley, chief executive at Aldi UK and Ireland said: “Our store and logistics colleagues have shown amazing commitment and have worked incredibly hard over these past weeks. They are on the front line of a vital national effort to ensure that everyone has access to food and other essentials, which is why we have recognised their hard work with a 10% bonus on all hours worked during this extremely challenging period.
“We remain as committed as ever to providing you with both a quick, safe and affordable shopping experience when you visit your local Aldi store. We ask that you continue to be patient and bear with us – these times are unprecedented and we cannot promise to get everything right the first time.”
