BOTH Aldi stores across Weymouth have launched a series of gender transition guides to support colleagues who are either undergoing transition or already transitioned.

Created with input from colleagues across the business, the guides aim to support transgender colleagues at all stages, alongside providing guidance for their direct leaders and tips for co-workers on how to help their colleagues return to work.

both Weymouth stores, in Link Park and in Mercery Road, are part of Aldi’s wider ‘Embrace’ Diversity and Inclusion strategy, which focuses on ensuring the supermarket giant is a respectful, supportive and representative place to work.

A spokesman from Aldi UK, said: "We believe colleagues should feel confident to bring their truest selves to work, and hope the launch of these guides will help anyone who has transitioned, is going through a transition or considering it, to feel safe and supported in doing just that."
