Specsavers Gorleston are celebrating the news that they have been awarded Platinum Employer status – just weeks after opening the new store in Lowestoft Road.

And the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Councillor Kerry Robinson-Payne, was on hand to present the award to practice manager Roxanne England and her hard-working team.

Great place to work

The Platinum Employer accreditation means that Specsavers Gorleston has been externally validated as a great place to work by HR specialists Korn Ferry Hay Group.

It means that high standards are being met across a number of different areas of people management; training and development, employee engagement and communications, recruitment and induction, performance management and reward, and talent management.

A word from the practice manager

Roxanne said: ‘We are delighted to have achieved this accreditation – and to have achieved it so quickly since opening the store. It is unusual for a store to achieve it so fast, and really reflects the hard work and dedication of our team.

‘We already knew we had a happy team, but it is great to have our belief that we are a great place to work confirmed. When staff are happy, they deliver a better customer experience. We will continue to strive to give everyone the best experience we can.’
