Bradley Stoke Specsavers is celebrating after being awarded Platinum Employer status.

Dedication to wellbeing and development 

The store has won the accolade in recognition of the directors’ dedication to their team’s wellbeing and career development.  

A word from the store director 

‘We are absolutely delighted to be awarded with the Platinum Employer accreditation – and to be the first in the region,’ says store director Ed Stanleigh.

‘As an employer, it’s really important to not only get the basics right – such as communication, resources and pay – but also to focus on helping our team learn and develop while offering a varied and enriching career.

‘This is a huge accolade for the entire team and says a lot about the sort of culture and staff environment we foster. We’ve got 21 employees and the majority of those are from the local area. We’re constantly looking at ways to innovate as an employer and to give back to the Bradley Stoke community through employment opportunities. We’ve also recently introduced two apprentices to the team and are looking forward to watching them grow in their roles.’

Platinum Employer scheme 

The store was externally assessed against five benchmarks in different areas of the employee experience, including talent management, recruitment and induction, and performance management and reward.
