Tesco slammed for 'suicide poster' used to motivate sales staff

London, Oct. 23 (ANI): Heads at a TESCO branch, British multinational grocery and general merchandise retailer, have been slammed for using a poster of man about to commit suicide to motivate staff.

The notice was put up at the staff room of a Tesco branch in Haverfordwest, south Wales, after a week of poor sales figures, the Mirror reports.

According to the report, the poster shows a man holding a gun to his head with the words: 'Goodbye Haverfordwest, it's been nice knowing you!'

The poster is believed to have upset a member of staff who described it as 'very offensive'.

A Tesco spokesman said the notice has since been removed following staff complaints. (ANI)
