Specsavers Lakeside has been awarded the prestigious business accreditation for its dedication to personal development.

Not only is the store – which is based in Intu Lakeside shopping centre – committed to caring for its customers with clinical expertise, Specsavers in Lakeside has now proved how well it looks after its staff with career opportunities and an all-round great place to work.

Platinum Employer 

The Platinum Employer status is devised and judged by employee engagement specialist, the Hay Group. Platinum Employer is tailor-made for optical and audiology retail businesses and sets high standards to be met across staff wellbeing and career development.

The rigorous assessment process requires evidence that a number of policies and procedures are in place and also includes interviews with staff, from optical assistants to directors.

Outstanding Achievement 

Jay Visrolia, store director at Specsavers in Lakeside, says: 'For a store that has been open little over five years I am very proud that we have achieved this outstanding accreditation already.

'We’re very lucky to have an incredibly dedicated and enthusiastic team, who always go over and beyond to deliver a very high standard of professionalism and customer service.'
