Specsavers celebrates its 35th anniversary this year and the business has changed significantly in that time; but one critical element that has remained unchanged at the heart of our operations – and our ongoing success – is our focus on ‘treating people as we would like to be treated ourselves’. This powerful mantra has always guided how we do things and it is the reason why we are so committed to embracing diversity and inclusion at Specsavers.
While the gender pay gaps we are reporting on are not a result of paying men and women differently for similar roles, the activity has highlighted the difference in the numbers of men and women in the highest and lowest seniority levels of each of these businesses.
We are committed to addressing these gaps and creating an environment that respects and values difference. We continue to build momentum with our global diversity and inclusion programme as we strive to make Specsavers an even greater place to work.
