Photos – Undercover Boss Series 3 Episode 6 Poundworld

Here are some photos from the next episode of Undercover Boss. It airs Thursday the 9th of August at 9pm on Channel 4…

On paper the family run Poundworld is an outright success story. The company started life in 1974 from a Wakefield market stall and has since expanded to have branches nationwide. But the credit crunch has been a double-edged sword for Poundworld – the company has expanded to meet the demand of cash-strapped Brits, but without being able to raise their prices (above a pound) the profit margins are constantly being squeezed. Director Martyn Birks knows the company is having problems and that expansion has come at a price – more stores has meant that the attention given to each one is being spread thinner. With reports of unsettled and unhappy staff, who are working far beyond what they are paid to do, some stores are failing to perform as well as they have been, while employee turnover is high. Can Martyn find out what it will take to get Poundworld back on track?
