TESCO Stores (M) Sdn Bhd recently held a graduation ceremony for its first batch of 24 management trainees in the retail industry. 

The eight-month training course, which was the longest and most comprehensive in the local retail industry, covered theory and on-the-job training sessions. 

Tesco Malaysia chief executive officer Simon Turner said in a statement that the company was committed to a long-term presence in Malaysia and its policy was to provide its employees with adequate skills.

The new management trainees have been posted as section managers in Tesco's four stores in Puchong, Malacca, Klang and Damansara; as well as Tesco's headquarters in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. 

Part of Tesco Malaysia's commitment as a responsible corporate citizen is to improve the standard of the retail business industry in Malaysia by transferring its vast global retailing expertise to the local workforce, according to the statement. 

Tesco Malaysia has a direct workforce of 2,000 employees, of which 98% are locals.
