A trio of Glasgow opticians are among the first in Scotland to be recognised for outstanding people management standards and receive a Platinum Employer Award.

Specsavers Byres Road, Glasgow Fort and Sauchiehall Street recently received the externally validated accreditation, highlighting their dedication to staff and employees within the company. 

Key areas

The overall aim of Platinum Employer is to recognise a business for providing a great overall employee experience. The scheme focuses on five key areas which are talent management, recruitment and induction, performance management and reward, learning and development and lastly employee communications and engagement.

Aiming to raise the bar of people management standards, the Platinum Employer initiative helps ensure Specsavers is ‘famous as a great place to work’.

Martin O’Neill, chairperson for Specsavers in Scotland said: ‘We are delighted that three of our Glasgow stores are among the first in Scotland to meet the criteria of the Platinum Employer Award.

‘We are proud of the service, opportunities and support we offer to our store teams and we aim to continue to provide a great place to work to all our employees. It was fantastic to receive such a prestigious accolade – something we hope all Specsavers stores will receive in the near future.’
