Supermarket chain Sainsbury's has developed a programme to enhance the personal leadership skills of its graduate recruits through a community-based project.

The action-learning programme has been designed by Impact, a company that recently won three-star accreditation in the Best Companies awards. A local primary school in Newham is at the heart of the community-project, which includes providing an allotment.

Joanne McGuire, graduate development, Sainsbury’s, commented: "At Sainsbury's we aim to fulfil our responsibilities to the communities and environments in which we operate – and the graduate community action learning programme Impact designed for us truly embodied this."
