The Broughton team recently celebrated after being awarded Platinum Employer status in recognition of its dedication to developing the next generation of eye health professionals.

The Broughton Retail Park store scooped the company’s national accolade after demonstrating a proven track record of putting its team’s wellbeing and career development first.  

The accreditation measures five benchmarks of the employee experience, including talent management, recruitment and induction, and performance management and reward. 

Helping the team learn and develop

Broughton store director, Scott Rogers, said: ‘As an employer, we think it’s really important to not only get the basics right, such as communication, resources and pay, but also to focus on helping our team learn and develop in the industry.

‘We’re thrilled to receive the Platinum Employer accreditation and we are committed to offering all our staff a varied and enriching career.

‘This is a huge accolade for our whole team and says a lot about the working culture and staff environment we foster, most of whom live in the surrounding area. We’re constantly looking at ways to innovate as an employer and to give back to the local community through employment opportunities.’

Specsavers director of HR, Mark Moorton, says: ‘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.
