Specsavers in Dumbarton receives Platinum Employer accolade

Specsavers in Dumbarton has received a high profile industry award in recognition of its outstanding people management standards.

The Specsavers store on High Street received the Platinum Employer accolade to honour the fantastic employee experience it provides.

As an externally validated accreditation scheme, Specsavers’ Platinum Employer aims to raise the bar of people management standards by focusing on five key areas - talent management; recruitment and induction; performance management and reward; learning and development; and employee communications and engagement.

Stores are reviewed periodically across these areas – and the Dumbarton team recently picked up the glittering honour.

A word from the CEO

John Perkins, Specsavers joint group CEO, said: ‘The Platinum Employer initiative is one that Specsavers fully supports and we hope that over time, all Specsavers stores will be awarded this status.

‘The award reinforces our commitment to our staff and helps ensure that Specsavers continues to be famous as a great place to work.

‘Congratulations to Robin and the team at the store. The award is very well deserved.’

A word from the store director

Specsavers Dumbarton store director Robin Mitchell said: ‘We’re very proud that the team has met the criteria required to become a Platinum Employer.

‘People are at the centre of the business. Supporting every member of staff to reach their full career potential is vital and it’s a big part of our ethos.

‘Thank you to everyone who has helped us achieve Platinum Employer accreditation.’
