Store directors, Gillian Sanguinette and Paul McGrane were proud to receive their Platinum Employer award this month, which recognised their outstanding people management standards.

Platinum employee experience

The aim of Platinum Employer status is to recognise businesses for providing a great overall employee experience. The scheme focuses on five key areas - talent management, recruitment and induction, performance management and reward, learning and development and lastly employee communications and engagement.

Great team work

Falmouth store director, Gillian Sanguinette, said: ‘Winning a Platinum Employer accolade is a team effort. The process involved a rigorous assessment, including staff interviews, reviewing all of our processes and appraisal system to show we are all dedicated and committed to everyone working in the store.’

Commitment to employee support

Tim Edwards, Hay Group senior consultant of Employee engagement specialists, the Hay Group, said: ‘This is a fantastic achievement for both Specsavers Falmouth who excelled in all of the assessments. I would like to congratulate Gillian, Paula and the team on their commitment to continuous improvement.’
