ASDA's Core Values

Asda have three main beliefs (Values) that they encourage there employees to follow. These are: Service to our customers, Respect for the individual and Strive for excellence

They might strictly impose those values on their staff but do they actually follow them. Lets look at each of them in more detail.

Respect for the individual

We are not one team, managers seem to think that they are above everyone else and that they can talk down at other collegues just because they’re management. There is also a “one rule for them, another rule for everyone else” attitude with in store. Managers do not listen to their staff and take on board what is said. I know people who have made suggestions to management but have not had them implemented. Managers only take on board ideas that will improve sales/profits as it will give them a bigger bonus. Asda management do not always behave with integrity. They also do not always thank their staff for a job well done, but are very quick to tell them off for doing something wrong. Asda generally do not treat their staff well as the comments posted posted by members of the GMB union show

Service to our customers

Asda managers are not always happy to help. They put themselves and their bonus first rather than the customer first.

    In a nutshell, what are ASDA’s core values?

    To fleece as many customers as possible, and bully their staff into going along with their criteria. In other words, maximum profit before the respect and welfare of both staff and customers.
