Skilled staff at a Newton Abbot store are celebrating after receiving recognition for their role as a leading local employer.
The Specsavers store on Queen Street has received a Platinum Employer award after demonstrating an excellent track record in developing career opportunities for employees.
Proud local employees
Julie Zberowski, store director at Specsavers Newton Abbot, says: ‘Everyone here is delighted and proud to receive Platinum status, and we will continue to build on the skills of all our staff for the future.
‘Our staff are dedicated and hard-working, and we are pleased to give them continued training opportunities that advance their careers and give our customers the best possible service.’
The Platinum Employer accreditation measures five benchmarks of the employee experience, including talent management, recruitment and induction, and performance management and reward.
Claire Richardson, Specsavers’ regional relationship manager, says: ‘This is an amazing achievement for everyone at Newton Abbot’s store.
‘The directors’ skills and experience in providing opportunities for members of staff have resulted in a modern store that is a credit to the town.’
The Platinum Employer scheme is part of Specsavers’ training and development programme, aimed at helping staff to benefit from a range of opportunities.
