Asda Community Life Campaign
Asda are supporting our Company Programme
Three times Community Retailer of the Year, Asda, will once again be supporting the Young Enterprise ‘Company Programme’ to help thousands of young people realise their potential.
Students will be offered a rare opportunity to be mentored by a store manager to help them set up and develop their business plans.
We have created a special workshop during which the store managers will take the students through selling techniques which we train our colleagues in, techniques that we believe the students will benefit from.
It’s a unique opportunity for the young people to hear about how we, as a national retailer, are run and ask the managers questions that can help them in working their own business.
For the second year running, students will also be invited to speak to our customers and colleagues to gain valuable experience and to sell their products in our stores.
We are also proud to be, once again, sponsoring the Regional and National finals with senior managers also attending those as panellists.
Our store managers really enjoy supporting the Young Enterprise students, last year our GSM Lorna Simpson, who manages our store in Totton told us:
‘Being involved in Young Enterprise has really opened my eyes to the fact that our store managers have a really useful set of skills that are not transferable within Asda, but outside of the business too. I’ve realised that I can have a positive influence outside the four walls or my store and make a real difference to young people’.
It’s all part of Asda Community Life, the programme that focuses on supporting the good causes that are closest to their customers hearts and the activity will be run by the in store Community Life Champions.
