Specsavers Hoddesdon and Borehamwood stores have both recently been awarded the prestigious position of ‘platinum employer’.
What is ‘Platinum Employer’?
The award is an excellence accreditation that recognises investment and commitment in developing its employees.
The initiative was set up to help Specsavers stores maintain high standards and provide a greater experience for their employees. It involved being externally assessed on five key areas of business standards, including performance management, recruitment and induction, and learning and development.
What’s been the stores reactions?
Lee Jobson-Fowle, store director at both Specsavers Hoddesdon and Borehamwood, says he is delighted that the leadership team has been rewarded for their hard efforts in striving to achieve the status.
‘This means a lot for both stores – we really care about our employees and their development with us and I think being awarded this really reflects that. I hope that everyone here feels that Specsavers is a great place to work!’
