In recognition of its dedication to ongoing personal development, Cardigan Specsavers has achieved a prestigious business accreditation being named a ‘Platinum Employer’.

Platinum Employer status

Specsavers’ externally-ratified Platinum Employer is tailor-made for optical and audiology retail businesses, which sets high standards across staff career development and wellbeing. It is devised and judged by the Hay Group, an employee engagement specialist.

The assessment criteria is rigorous and includes interviews with staff members across all levels, along with evidence that various policies and procedures have been implemented.

The grading standards across the scheme are performance management and reward, learning and development and employee communications and engagement, which the Cardigan store scored highly in within each band.

Dedicated team

Helledd Hallett, store director, says: ‘It is an honour to be recognised as a Platinum Employer and it’s a well-deserved accreditation for our hardworking team.

‘We are committed to the development of our staff; we give team members opportunities to train on the job as well as gain that all-important practical experience. Our customers feel welcome and safe in the knowledge that our staff members are fully committed to their work and take pride in what they do, and this accreditation demonstrates that.’
