Specsavers in Canvey Island is celebrating after being awarded Platinum Employer status. Stores receive the award for dedication to developing skills and improving communication of its staff members.

External assessment on five key areas of business standards - including performance management, recruitment and induction, and learning and development – lead to the store receiving the honour.

Always improving

Specsavers Canvey Island store director Jemma Paynter said: ‘We have a brilliant and dedicated team who are always willing to go the extra mile for customers.

‘We have been working hard to improve our working practices and provide more career opportunities to our staff, so it’s great to have been recognised for our efforts through the Platinum Employer scheme.’

Maintaining high standards

Platinum Employer is an initiative set up to help Specsavers stores maintain high standards and provide a greater experience for their employees.
