Specsavers in West Bromwich are celebrating Platinum Employer accreditation in recognition of their dedication to staff wellbeing, career development and reward. 

Specsavers stores on Bearwood Road, Bearwood, and in New Square Shopping Centre, West Bromwich, have both been awarded Platinum Employer status after being externally assessed against five benchmarks in different areas of the employee experience, including talent management, recruitment and induction, and performance and reward. 

A word from the store director

‘We’ve been working hard towards this accreditation and are delighted that both stores have the Platinum Employer accreditation,’ said store director, Majid Jawaid.

‘As an employer, it’s really important to not only get the basics right – such as communication, resources and pay – but also to focus on helping our staff to learn and develop while offering a varied and enriching career.’

Specsavers director of HR, Mark Moorton, said: ‘The Platinum Employer scheme is an exciting new addition to our extensive portfolio of training and development programmes, helping our staff to benefit from the opportunity of a full-career journey from entry-level to store owner.’
