A DUMBARTON food store is to give colleagues the option to display pronouns on their name badges.

The M&S Foodhall at the town's St James Retail Park will join other Marks and Spencers stores up and down the country in the new move.

The retailer took to social media platform LinkedIn to encourage as many team members as possible to get involved in the scheme.

Forward-thinking staff member Morgen Kane suggested the idea to bosses who thought it was a great idea to “continue to build an inclusive future” within the organisation.

A spokesperson for M&S said: “Following colleague requests, M&S recently introduced the option to include preferred pronouns on name badges.

"It is entirely optional and is available to all colleagues at M&S.”
