This will allow the growing multinational business to take an increasingly proactive approach to analysing risk trends globally, according to the company.

“We are thrilled to start a new and exciting journey with one of the world’s leading multinational retailers, providing the company with the service and technology that will help keep its colleagues and customers safe, now and in the future,” Alcumus chief operating officer Helen Jones said.

“For over 20 years, our award-winning technology, and expertise, has been helping our clients create better and safer workplaces, and we are delighted to be extending our connections further in the retail sector and expanding our client portfolio in what is already a major sector of operation for us.”

The news comes as Tesco revealed that around 13,000 temporary Christmas staff have been kept on to help it cope with staff absences due to Covid-19.

The UK’s biggest supermarket said nearly half of the 30,000 temporary staff taken on over Christmas have been hired until at least the end of January as it battles with surging staff sickness levels due to the Omicron variant.
