Specsavers in Croydon are celebrating double platinum awards success in recognition of its dedication to employee wellbeing and career development.

After undertaking a rigorous inspection, the store has been awarded Platinum Employer status, while also becoming a holder of the Platinum Health and Safety Excellence accolade.

'Enriching Career'

Bill Pennell, Specsavers Croydon store director, said, ‘As an employer, it’s vitally important to not only get the basics right – such as communication, resources and pay – but also to provide a safe and stable learning environment for our members of staff to enjoy a varied and enriching career.

‘These awards are testament to the sort of culture and staff environment we foster here in Croydon and we will continue to ensure that this remains a priority.’


The Platinum Employer initiative is an externally validated accreditation scheme which focuses on five key areas – talent management, recruitment and induction, performance management and reward, learning and development and employee communications and engagement.
