Droitwich Specsavers is celebrating Platinum Employer accreditation in recognition of its dedication to staff wellbeing, career development and reward.  

The store has been awarded Platinum Employer status after being externally assessed against five benchmarks in different areas of the employee experience, including talent management, recruitment and induction, and performance management and reward.  

A word from the store director

‘For us it’s really important to not only get the basics right – such as communication, resources and pay – but also to focus on helping our staff to learn and develop while offering a varied and enriching career,’ said store director Emma Singh.

‘We have been working towards this accreditation for the past twelve months and were recognised on our first attempt, which was a brilliant achievement for the store. We are always looking for ways to improve employee engagement, and ensure our team are always looking towards progression and fulfilling their potential.’

Exciting scheme 

Specsavers director of HR, Mark Moorton, said: ‘The Platinum Employer scheme is an exciting new addition to our extensive portfolio of training and development programmes, helping our staff to benefit from the opportunity of a full-career journey from entry-level to store owner.’
