Specsavers in Cheltenham has recently been recognised for its commitment to employee engagement, wellbeing and career development with a prestigious business award.

The scheme

The Platinum Employer scheme was designed to support the recruitment and retention of Specsavers staff across the UK and Ireland. 

The store 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 employees.

Hard-working team

‘We’re delighted to announce that we’re now recognised as a Platinum Employer,’ said store director, Terry Weldon. ‘We’re always looking for ways to improve employee engagement and ensure that the whole team is working towards fulfilling their potential. 

‘We’re dedicated to encouraging our team to do their best and, without their hard work, we wouldn’t be able to make such a positive difference for our customers,’ added Terry. ‘This award is a brilliant achievement for the store and adds to the sense of pride we feel working for Specsavers and serving our local community.’
