Mi Hub is thrilled to share that we have won the Award for Best Managed Major Contract, for the Tesco rollout, at the PCIAW Awards 2022. 


PCIAW-Award-WINNER-Best-Managed-Major-Contract-2022-250x250Attended by Mi Hub colleagues and key contacts from Tesco, the awards were hosted at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow, London on 19th October 2022. 

Tesco PLC is a British multinational groceries and general merchandise retailer and Dimensions are proud to have been supporting Tesco with their uniform provision since 1997.

Tesco is one of the most valuable brands in the UK, and is also the sixteenth most valuable retail brand worldwide as of 2021. With 275,000 uniform wearing colleagues throughout the UK and ROI, Tesco understands the importance of dressing their people brilliantly to stand out in the marketplace. 

2.2 million garments were successfully delivered to over 2,950 locations within the agreed 9-week schedule; the largest roll-out of a new uniform, in the UK, in less than 65 days! This was achieved despite numerous challenges which included a global pandemic, container availability, delayed shipments, production delays and UK driver shortages.

The Tesco roll-out 2022 deserved to win the “Best Managed Major Contract” award as the project was successful due to the relationship built up over the last 25 years, giving Tesco the confidence that Dimensions would deliver the roll-out, on time and in budget, and to win this award would be a big thank you to the project team who worked together to deliver this historic activity.

The sheer scale of the project, involving all areas of the Dimensions and Tesco business from IT, Branding, Marketing, Logistics, Procurement, Finance, Buying, Tesco Leadership Team and the external supply chain, is deserving of this award as it is a true demonstration of a “Best Managed Major Contract”.

To roll out 2.2m garments to 275,000 colleagues within a short window was achieved through the skill and sheer dedication of the people working on this project in agreeing a strategic plan that would work for both parties, making it happen and sticking to the plan.  Part of the success of the project was also being flexible in our approach so that we could mitigate the challenges along the way; not least the pandemic, which we overcame by continual conversations, highlighting any risks, agreeing a contingency plan and communicating regularly with all concerned so everyone was informed and working to the same plan.
