ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “Our annual Colleague Survey forms a vital part of our research and informs our conversations with policymakers on the needs of people employed in our sector and helps employers to gain a better understanding of how they can support their staff.

“We are urging all colleagues working in convenience stores to take part in the survey and provide information about their experiences of working in local shops to ensure that their voice is heard and to help us create an accurate picture of what it is like to work in our sector.”
