The team at Towcester Specsavers has been recognised for its commitment to employee engagement, wellbeing and career development with a prestigious business award.
The store on Watling Street was externally assessed against five key areas, including recruitment and induction, performance management, and learning and development, to receive its Platinum Employer status. The initiative was designed and verified by employee engagement specialist, Korn Ferry Hay Group, to support the recruitment and retention of high-calibre Specsavers employees.
‘We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been recognised as a Platinum Employer,’ said store director, Satvinder Soomal. ‘As a relatively new store, (we opened last year), it’s great to have achieved this status already and it’s a testament to the fabulous team we have on board here.
‘We’ve worked hard to ensure the whole team is working towards fulfilling their potential while creating a positive working culture that’s engaging and motivating. This, in turn, ensures that we can offer the very best in terms of customer service, serving the eye care and audiology needs of the local community.’
In light of increased demand, the store in Towcester is currently recruiting for people to join its team, with an apprenticeship and optical assistant role available. Optical experience isn’t essential - pop into the store or get in touch to find out more.
